Revised Academic Calendar Consultation Underway


As the University welcomes 33% of our students back to campuses in a staggered manner in terms of the directives by the Minister of Higher Education and Training, we are aware that the University community is anxious to receive information on the adjusted academic dates for the 2020 academic year.

A revised 2020 Academic Calendar which provides a broad framework for Faculties to set their own academic activities has been developed and consultations with Faculties and the Student Representative Council (SRC) are currently underway. The revised Academic Calendar will be presented to the Executive Committee of Senate (ECS) for approval soon.  Upon ECS approval, it will then be published and shared with the University Community.

We encourage our staff and students to also access the COVID-19 Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s) page for more information, as well as the FAQs relating to academic and research activities.
