COVID-19: Closure of UFH University Of Fort Hare
The coronavirus has a ripple effect that sees the closure of all higher education institutions. The University of Fort Hare has released a statement concerning its closure.
University management at UFH has come together to discuss the effects Covid-19 will have on the institution.
Due to the fact that hundreds of universities are closing and students are attending classes online, university and college management teams are having to find ways to better communicate with their pupils. Many have gone on to discover how useful text messaging is, others have increased email communications, and some use weekly online form meetings to ensure students are on track. UFH is no different.
The University has decided to close for an early recess from the 18th of March until the 15th of April.
Students are being encouraged to vacate their residences. The evacuation of residence students is a matter that is still in discussion between the University and it’s Student Representative Council (SRC).
Registration is still ongoing for students until the 20th of March.
Staff is to continue their work.
The process of making online learning reality is underway and to provide training for staff.
Contact group meetings are being limited. Conferences and public lectures are canceled.
May graduation ceremonies are canceled and will be able to have a ceremony in September. Students who were to graduate are having arrangements so that they can still receive their certificates.
