The Chancellor of Kyambogo University, Prof Eli Katunguka, has revealed that they will reopen in February for continuing students to complete their semester after spending nine months at home without studying.
Addressing a press conference at the university yesterday, Prof Katunguka said they plan to reopen for continuing students on February 1st and students will study for two weeks before sitting end of semester exams.
According to Prof Katunguka, students will first be taught online for two weeks starting January 18 before physically reporting at campus on February 1st.
He also revealed that first year students who were currently admitted will report for the 2020/2021 academic year on March 1st.
Prof Katunguka, however, said their roadmap will depend on the government’s decision to reopen all institutions of learning for other learners rather than finalists.
The State minister for Higher Education, John Chrysostom Muyingo, during the education sector review recently, said the decision to reopen education institutions for other classes will be determined after the ministry’s team, which is conducting inspection of schools, by the end of this month.
