Tertiary institutions set for gradual reopening
UNIVERSITIES and colleges are scheduled to re-open on July 13 starting with final year students who are examination candidates, the Higher and Tertiary Education ministry has said.
The universities, colleges along with primary and secondary schools, were closed in line with the coronavirus (Covid-19)-induced lockdown.
This comes as the ministry implored institutions to ensure compliance with precautionary measures to contain the spread of Covid-19 as lessons resume.
The ministry applauded local telecommunications companies for offering subsidised data bundles to students.
Students in polytechnics and industrial training colleges will be grouped according to disciplines beginning with Applied Sciences, Arts, Automotive, Civil, Construction, Electrical, Information Communication Technology and Mechanical.
