MUT welcomes the last group of students back to campus
Mangosuthu University of Technology (MUT) is ready to welcome the last group of students to the University while following the COVID-19 protocols. Second year students are expected to arrive back on campus from 26 September 2020. The Acting Deputy Vice-Chancellor: Teaching and Learning, Dr Manyane Makua said that preparations were currently underway to welcome this group of students and to facilitate their safe return to residences and campus. “I am pleased to announce that the final group, which is our second year students, is scheduled to return to campus for the resumption of face-to-face teaching and learning activities,” said Dr Makua. Lectures for these students will commence on 1 October 2020.
Dr Makua added that only students who must attend lectures will be allowed to be on campus at any given time. According to Dr Makua, the students that require access to the library will be allowed to do so on a rotational basis. The library will communicate access times to ensure the safety of students and staff at all times.
The second year students will be given orientation on COVID-19 protocols and regulations when they return to campus as part of MUT’s efforts to ensure that both staff and students are safe. This will be run from 28-30 September 2020. Further logistical arrangements will be communicated with the students as soon as they return to campus.
