Higher institutions of learning are in the final preparatory stages of having learners physically back to continue learning as directed by the President of Uganda HE Yoweri K Museveni.
Most institutions of learning have opted for phased reopening given that most students are not yet vaccinated. In order to be certain that covid-19 won’t impinge the learning process, vaccination has been set as one of the prerequisites for physical learning.
Uganda Christian University (UCU) freshers are so far the luckiest as they are to report first before other students come in to crowd the place.
In a letter dated October 6th, UCU’s Guild President (main campus), on matters relating to reopening for continuing students and first years, said that priority had been given to first years.
“Priority has been given to the first years as they will report earlier than all students and have a complete physical semester on 1st November under the guidance of the government on reopening institutions…” the letter reads.
Continuing students at UCU are to have a blended semester.
Regardless of the blended learning, UCU students are to do exams physically despite learning online as indicated in the same letter.
