COLLEGE NOTICE (Updated 12/04/21)

Resumption of delivery on College campuses continues to be limited to areas where skills training and assessment needs to take place on site. Unlike schools, Colleges of Further Education have not resumed delivery in full. The College is operating in line with the NI Executive’s Roadmap to Recovery and must wait on the Executive’s decision to trigger the next stage on the roadmap before resuming delivery.

The NI Executive is scheduled to review this later this week and should the decision be taken to trigger Stage 2 of the Roadmap to Recovery, the College will inform students accordingly. Until this takes place, students should continue to follow the direction provided by their course tutors and continue to monitor all communications via email, website and social media.


Learning Resource Centres are open for students unable to access online lessons from home. Student services and limited canteen facilities are also available. Student queries should be directed to Course Co-ordinators. General queries should be emailed to

Student Counselling

Counselling support for SRC is provided by Inspire.

The following short videos provide information about student counselling and the Support HUB 


Counselling Sessions

Student counselling is available for all students in SRC who are struggling with a personal concern such as relationship difficulties, grief, difficult life circumstances, anxiety and depression.

For all Southern Regional College students who are struggling with a personal concern, counselling support is available in partnership with Inspire Students - an independent and confidential counselling service which is available 24 hours per day, 365 days per year. Students often find it useful to get support from a qualified counsellor who will work within strict professional guidelines and can help with whatever difficulty you may be experiencing.
