MAKERERE – The Makerere University Senate at its 164th meeting received and considered a request from Colleges and the Students Guild for recovery of lost time due to the effects of the Industrial Action by staff at the beginning of Semester II 2018/2019 Academic Year.

According to Academic registrar Mr. Alfred Masikye, the Senate discussed the matter and agreed that the School of Law, College Veterinary Medicine Animal Resources and Biosecurity and some selected Programmes from the College of Humanities and Social Sciences (CHUSS) could adjust their teaching and examinations time tables by two (2) weeks within the recess semester.

In the few isolated cases where students received coursework tests late, arrangements have been made to allow submissions on a case by case basis as determined by the affected units.

Regarding the College of Education and External Studies where students on the BA/BSc. Education programmes have overlapping courses offered and examined at the collaborating Colleges (CHUSS, CaNAS and CoBAMS), the academic registrar  said the matter has also been resolved and necessary adjustments made in liaison with the Colleges.

Mr.  Masikye added that exams for the School of Law, College Veterinary Medicine, Animal Resources and Bio-security and College of Humanities and Social Sciences shall start on
May 13, 2019 and end on June1, 2019.
