The Autumn Term will start on 28 September 2020, with a wholly online welcome week / study weekends starting the w/c 21 September 2020.

We will continue to follow the Scottish Government’s COVID-19: Framework for Decision Making throughout our planning process and we’ll continue to monitor the advice and guidance as the new term date approaches.

Some parts of the SRUC may return to our offices sooner or later than this date. This will be determined following advice from local and national governments.

We continue to work within government guidelines to ensure both the welfare and safety of our students and colleagues together with ensuring business continuity.

If you develop symptoms, please email for advice and we will of course do our best to support you.

SAC Consulting

SAC Consulting offices are open and operating, however we ask our customers to continue contacting us by phone or email. Whilst some staff are in the office, most are working from home and some are out on farms. We continue to have unreliable access to post so if you need to share information with us, please do so by e-mail or other digital tools rather than by post.

We recognise this is a critical period for our customers and we have been able to, and continue to, deliver our full ranges of services. SAC Consulting values the support and understanding of its customers at this difficult time.
