Continuing students who could not take advantage of online teaching during the full restrictions on movement are to return to the classroom

The University of Ghana is to reopen from 31 August to enable continuing students who were not able to take part in the online teaching and learning programme for the second semester to do so.

The decision follows the approval of the university’s proposal by the Ministry of Education.

A statement signed by the Registrar of the university reads: “In line with the announcement of the President of the Republic in respect of the completion of the 2019/2020 academic year for public universities, the Ministry of Education has approved the University of Ghana’s proposal for the return of continuing students of the university who were unable to participate in the online teaching and learning programme, to complete the second semester.”

Two-week exam period

The statement said that continuing students who wish to return to campus should wait for official communication on arrangements from the university.

The students will be required to spend three weeks attending classes and use one week to revise for exams which will run over a period of two weeks.

It further advised the university community to continue to adhere to all safety and precautionary measures to help contain the novel coronavirus.

“Management would like to assure employees, students, parents, guardians and all stakeholders that the safety and well-being of all members of the community is of utmost priority,” the statement said.

The university hospital will continue to provide general health care to all those living and working on campus.
