Kyambogo University students anxious over delayed semester resumption
Continuing students at Kyambogo University have been thrown into more anxiety after the institution revealed that it is not yet ready to reopen for them to continue with their studies.
According to a communication from the institution’s Twitter handle, the management has not yet formally agreed on the to let the students back and has asked students to disregard earlier reports that they will reopen on 7th December 2020.
“Dear Students, some of you have been asking whether you’re going to report to continue your studies at the end of November, on December 7th, etc. We haven’t come up with the official date for resumption of studies by continuing students. Preparations are ongoing,” read the tweet.
Students have been away from clas since March 2020 when the President closed learning institutions across the country in the wake of a coronavirus disease outbreak.
Students have been eagerly preparing to return and resume their studies, but have now been left disappointed, and will likely have to wait until next year before they return to class.
Final year students recently returned to complete their end of semester exams. Kyambogo University has reportedly also not yet received accreditation from the National Council for Higher Education to conduct online lessons.
