Victoria University has been allowed by the ministry of education and sports to conduct physical learning at it's camapus located at Jinja Road in Kampala City but ‘there should never be crowding to endanger staff and students’ and ‘should ensure adequacy of space for class, and strict implementation of S.O.Ps in all areas around the institution’.
In a letter to the acting Vice Chancellor of Victoria University dated 15th March 2021, Dr. Jane Egau Okou, the permanent secretary, ministry of education and sports, 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.
“If you have adequate space and can keep all students effectively timetabled in a staggered manner, you should see the approval of your governing council and implement as guided,” Dr Egau Okou said in the letter responding to the university’s request for ‘physical’ reopening.
Victoria University, like many other learning institutions that suffered the fate of COVID19 that led to the closure of all schools in March 2020 by President Yoweri Museveni to prevent the spread of the virus has been conducting online education.
