After clearance from the Ministry of Education and Sports, Victoria University has started holding physical classes a year after physical learning was suspended in the country to curb the spread of Covid-19.
Victoria University has since been conducting online classes but starting this academic year, that kicked off with an orientation week for new students yesterday, the University is holding physical classes, in compliance to guidelines and measures put in place to fight the Covid-19 pandemic.
In a letter dated March 15 and addressed to the Vice Chancellor Victoria University, from Dr. Jane Egau Okou on behalf of the Permanent secretary for Ministry of Education and Sports, the institution was given a green light to conduct physical classes but advised to ensure adequacy of space for classes and strict implementation of SOPs in all areas by the students.
“It is well noted that the university has adequately addressed itself to the matter of compliance to guidelines and measures put in place to fight Covid-19 pandemic. The University therefore proposes opening for physical learning,” part of the letter reads.
“The purpose of this letter, is to emphasize that there should never be any crowding to endanger staff and students. As per the guidance of the HE President, you should ensure adequacy of space for class and strict implementation of SOPs in all areas around the institution by all students. If you have adequate space and can keep all students effectively timetabled in a staggered manner, you should seek the approval of your Governing Council and implement as guided.”
The University has been holding online teaching classes for all its students and will now move to the physical bit after being cleared.
The University that was started in 2010 was acquired by the Ruparelia Group in 2013.
