Chuka University in Tharaka-Nithi County gets first approval to reopen for higher learning in the country from the Ministry of Education.


University Education and Research Principal Secretary Ambassador Simon Nabukwesi said on Wednesday that the Ministry was content with the university’s readiness for the resumption of studies, “the university met all requirements set by the Ministry”.


Nabukwesi said the university should resume academic sessions on August 3.


The PS, who had toured the university on Tuesday, July 14, said postgraduate students in their final academic year would be given priority as studies resume in early August.


Nabukwesi said that final-year Master’s and PhD students will be allowed to prepare for their exams which will be sat before September 2020. This, however, applies to universities that would have obtained clearance from the Ministry of Education after complying with COVID-19 safety guidelines.


“Once the finalist students have completed their studies, they will create space for those reporting in September,” said Nabukwesi.
