First semester lectures for 2020/2021 will be delivered to the students virtually due to the “prevailing circumstances occasioned by the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic,” the management of the University of Ibadan has said.
This development was contained in a special release signed by the University’s Registrar, Mrs Olubunmi Faluyi, and made available to the public on Thursday, January 14th.
The University announced that students will not be accommodated on campus during the period of online lectures in a bid to comply with the protocols to control the spread of the Pandemic.
It also revealed that the 2019/2020 academic session has been cancelled.
“Senate also approved the cancellation of the 2019/2020 session. The next session is, therefore, renamed 2020/2021 Academic Session. Consequently, students who have been admitted for the 2019/2020 session will now be regarded as the 2020/2021 intakes,” it explained.
The 2020/2021 academic session will commence on February 20, 2021, and end on January 7, 2022, according to the academic calendar for the session.
The university also said the 2018/2019 academic session, which was paused in compliance with the Federal Government’s directives to close schools around March 2020 due to COVID-19 pandemic, will begin on January 18, 2021, and end on February 19, 2021.
