Winter Weather - Your Questions Answered
We will make any official announcements via the Fife College website. Information will also appear on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
If the weather takes a turn for the worst when you’re already in College and we make the decision to close, you’ll be informed by staff members.
Please contact a member of staff in your department to be marked as present, particularly if you receive a bursary/other payment from the College.
The department may be able to suggest an alternative arrangement for you. If no alternative arrangement is available, you can undertake some self-directed study if you have access to iLearn.
Any absence as a result of the adverse weather (including local school closures if you have caring responsibilities) will be authorised and your funding will not be affected. Please ensure you follow normal absence procedures and keep your Course Tutor informed. They will be able to guide you on self-directed study to ensure that you can continue with college work.

Official closures will not impact your attendance record or bursary payments.
The College will remain open as normal unless there has been an official announcement made that it is to close/or is closed. It could be that the bad weather such as snow only affects some campuses, so please check for announcements regularly.
We will do our best to ensure that there are no delays with your payments.
If the College is closed, this may have an unavoidable effect on payments for a minimal amount of time.
Please use this time for self-directed study either via iLearn, additional materials or using online discussion where available.
Please check our Work Placements and Assessments page for more information.
If you have any concerns regarding how the weather has affected, you and your studies please contact your Curriculum Manager in the first instance – if you are unable to get in touch with them please ask at reception to speak to a member of The Student Experience and Engagement team or call 0344 248 0115.
