Dear Students, Parents, and Staff,
In light of the rising cases of COVID-19 in the country, and the announcement today by the Ministry of Higher Education (MOHE) informing universities to defer face-to-face registration, the Management has decided to take the following steps as a precautionary move to ensure the safety, wellbeing and health of all people in the HELP community. This is also done based on an advisory note from the DG from the Ministry of Health.
- All teaching will be moved online. The Deans and Heads of the respective faculties and departments will advise their students on the details. We would like to avoid having large crowds of people in the University.
- All external examinations – For example, A-Level examinations and English Bar examinations will go on as scheduled. All those involved in the examinations must follow the SOPs diligently.
- Practicums and classes where the labs/equipment are necessary can continue with less than 20 people in the room.
- All on site internal examinations /tests should be rescheduled to later dates, or should be conducted online.
- Students will not be allowed to come back to campus, except those involved in external examinations, or are given permission based on laboratory work or the use of essential equipment.
- Students may return to the campus to return or borrow books from the library. Again, please ask for permission from your departments to return to the campus and kindly produce the email confirmation for the security to allow you to enter campus premises.
- Students may return to the campus if they have appointments at the Centre for Psychological and Counselling Services (CPCS). Please show the evidence, such as an email from CPCS to the security guards.
- All Administrative staff will be working in shifts to ensure students can contact the departments if and when the need arises.
We wish to reiterate that as of today, there is no Covid-19 case at HELP University or HELP Academy.
Take care and be safe. Please adhere to the SOPS to protect yourself and the community.
