Makerere University Vice Chancellor Prof Barnabas Nawangwe has revealed that shortly after finishing their orientation and registration, first year students will be sent home to study online. Nawangwe disclosed the development while talking to Daily Monitor, a local newspaper about Makerere’s planned reopening.

 Nawangwe explained that enrollment, registration and teaching of first year students (freshers) will commence on March 1 on campus. He also revealed that final year and continuing students started online lessons on February 8 following President Museveni’s directive to teach in a staggered manner.

When freshers return home, the university is expected to select another group to study on campus and scientists have an upper hand. It should be recalled that President Museveni advised that scientists who do a lot of practical learning should be allowed to study on campus.

Several Makerere University students have told Campus Bee that the university has not held a single online class despite telling the press that finalists and continuing students are studying virtually.

In related news, Kyambogo University Vice Chancellor, Prof Eli Katunguka told the same paper that continuing students will report on March 1 for face to face lecturers. After three weeks, they will sit for end of semester exams for the academic  year 2019/2020. He added that the second semester for 2019/2020 will end on April 11.

 Katunguka further communicated that first year students will self-enroll online between March 22 and April 11. They will officially report to the university on April 10 for blended/physical lectures.
