University of Ghana have released plans to run a shift system for the 2021/2022 Academic year.
Per the university, large number of students admitted this year linked with the COVID-19 safety protocols has caused this.
The Dean of Student Affairs of the university, Godfred A. Bokpin, said this strategy will create a good academic environment that will be in line with COVID-19 Protocols.
“We have practically lost a semester because the academic calendar usually starts from August to the end of July, but now the school will be reopening in January.”
”So, that requires some sort of alteration to the calendar and due to Covid-19, it might not be prudent to have all the students on campus within that same period.”
“The arrangement for the undergraduate program is that final year students and first-year students will come in first and when they are done then year two and year 3 students come next.”
”These arrangements in order for the majority of students to be able to benefit from the school’s digital infrastructure as well as ease density on the campus.”
“The university had already communicated to the students and the wider university community that we are maintaining the fees that we charge for the 2019/2020 academic year.”
