REVIEW OF SEMESTER DATES

This is to inform all students that the semester dates have been extended by three weeks.

This is due to the disruption of face-to-face teaching and learning brought on the third wave of COVID 19 which led to the abrupt closure of the university. The school has continued with online teaching and learning in the meantime to mitigate the ongoing COVID 19 pandemic situation.

This is to you that the second-semester examination will therefore commence on 7th June 2021 up to and including 18th June 2021.
