Notice to all Students: Partial Recall
As you are aware, face-to-face teaching and learning was suspended throughout the country due to the COVID-19 pandemic on 13th March 2020 and all educational institutions were advised to embrace technology by changing delivery mode to online. At Mount Kenya University, students were transited to the virtual learning platform for courses that do not require practicals.
Recently, the Ministry of Education in its circular to universities offering medicine, allowed the recall of finalists in the respective schools of medicine. Further, in consultation with regulatory bodies domesticated in various Government Ministries, the Ministry has allowed recall of students undertaking programmes that require practicals, so as to enable them to be at the same level with other students completing their courses online.
In view of the above, we will allow students in the schools listed below to liaise with their respective schools on matters related to undertaking their practicals from the 5th of October 2020. The students will also be allowed to sit for their January/April and May/August trimester/semester examinations on campus. The schools are:
- Medical School
- School of Pharmacy
- School of Clinical Medicine
- School of Pure and Applied Sciences
- School of Law
- School of Hospitality
- School of Computing and Informatics
- School of Nursing
- School of Education (BEDS, BSNE - Secondary option and DSNE)
- School of Public Health
- School of Engineering, Energy and the Built Environment
Once in the university, you will be expected to comply with the Ministry of Health protocols for prevention and containment of COVID-19.
Students who require accommodation are requested to contact Central Catering and Accommodation Services (CCAS).
All other students are requested to prepare to report as soon as we receive advice from the Ministry of Education.
