After 7 months of closure due to the outbreak of Covid-19 in Kenya, Technical University of Mombasa reopened for face to face learning at the University in November for all continuing students. This was after the ministry of education allowed all higher learning institutions to reopen under strict Covid-19 Protocols.
Aftet the reopening, all continuing students were forced to sit for their end of semester exams which they could have done in April according to the university’s calendar for the academic year 2019/20. The institution later on in January 2021 allowed all first years who were leaning online and those who seemed for admission at the varsity to report on 4th January 2021.
According to the official memo shared by the Vice Chancellor from TUM to Mnews, only Continuing students who were to proceed to their second semester were allowed to report at the varsity with first years. The Varsity therefore asked all students who were to go for attachments to do them between January and April as they prepare for official reopening in May 2021 for the new academic year 2020/21. Other students with no attachments were forced to go for a long holiday which normally lasts for 4 months.
According to official communication from a close source to Mnews from the Varsity, the institution will therefore officially reopen for all continuing students in May 2021 for a fresh academic year. The university is set to release results for the exams that were done in November. Continuing students with special and Supplementary exams shall be forced to do their exams between March and April before they’re released earlier May for them to proceed to a new academic year.
Final year students with pending issues such as Supplementary and Special exams are set to do them on 18th January 2021 before they graduate in February.
