Corona Virus COVID 19


(Updated 08.01.21)

SMO’s campus is currently closed due to Scottish Government Covid-19 restrictions. We expect the campus to remain closed throughout January and likely most of February. However we are very much still open and working: all our courses, learning, projects and research are still taking place online. Students who are normally campus-based will be attending classes online from home.

Our distance learning courses will be continuing as normal, online. All staff are working remotely, and although it may take a little longer than normal to get back to you, we are still here to support you, our language and our culture!

Please email us when you need to be in touch – this is the best way to get in contact. If you have enquiries about admission to our courses, please contact us on: for other matters and general enquiries, please contact at: stay safe, a chàirdean.
