Final year Ashesi University students end semester online

Ashesi University, one of the private tertiary institutions in the country, says it has completed its academic work for the second semester of the 2019/2020 academic year, hence, it will not be open for teaching and learning.

This comes even as President Akufo-Addo, in a televised address on Sunday night directed that schools, which have been shut down since March because of the novel coronavirus, can now reopen from June 15, 2020, for final year students.

The President explained that it was aimed at ensuring that final year students wrote their exit exams without challenges.

But Ashesi, in a social media post said they have been able to complete their semester online.

“With faculty support, final year students #atAshesi have mostly been able to complete their semester online. As a result, seniors will not be returning to campus following the partial reopening of schools by the Government of Ghana.” (1/5)

The University also urged faculty members with outstanding work to submit same online. 

“Seniors with outstanding work to be submitted will continue to work with their faculty online. We are thankful to everyone at Ashesi for holding steady through the last half of the 2019/2020 academic year. It has been a period of remarkable collaboration and effort.”

Other tertiary institutions like the University of Ghana and the Ghana Institute of Journalism have all planned to continue academic activities online despite the easing of restrictions.
