UI Announces Cancellation Of 2019/2020 Session

The senate of the University of Ibadan (UI) has cancelled the institution’s 2019/2020 academic session and renamed it 2020/2021.

On Monday, the varsity’s committee of provosts, deans, and directors made some recommendations that were subsequently subjected to the approval of the senate.

The senate, after its sitting on Thursday, approved the committee’s recommendation.

The varsity’s academic calendar had earlier been disrupted due to the prolonged strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) which started in March 2020 and ended in December.

In its new resolve, the institution said it will not be admitting undergraduate students who intend to gain admission into the school through the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) for 2021/2022.

“At its special meeting held on Monday, 11 January, 2021, the Committee of Provosts, Deans and Directors recommended the proposed Academic Calendar for 2019/2021 Session to senate for approval,” the senate wrote in a statement.

“It decided that: the 2019/2020 academic session be cancelled and the new session now renamed 2020/2021 academic session. The proposed calendar for 2019/2020 be accordingly changed to 2020/2021.

“The University should notify JAMB not to list it in its brochure for 2021/2022 session as candidates who have already registered for UI 2020/2021 Post-UTME would be taken for that session (2021/2022).”

The decision to not admit undergraduates for the 2021/2022 session, however, exempts postgraduate students and direct entry students from affiliated institutions.

It also excludes those seeking admission into the distance learning programme in its centres (DLC).

“However, affiliated institutions, distance learning centre and postgraduate college would be allowed to admit students for the 2021/2020 session,” the senate further wrote.

It is understood that the resumption of academic activities for those already admitted for the renamed 2019/2020 has been scheduled for February 22, 2021.
