Nust realigns academic calendar
some prospective students.”
Mrs Nyoni said only the Faculty of Medicine would resume its lectures in August 2019.
She said Nust was also in the process of finalising accommodation and learning space for prospective students.
“Nust has identified places which will accommodate our students for the March intake. We are finalising with several institutions on building to rent in case we need extra lecturing space. The academic year is designed in such a way that our current students will complete their academic year probably at the end of April,” said Mrs Nyoni.
She said the shift in academic year entails that the university will not be enrolling First Year students in August except for Faculty of Medicine students.
Mrs Nyoni said the university has lined up programmes to sensitise the public about changes in the academic year.
“The Nust Marketing team will be going out to the community to raise awareness on this development so that students are fully aware of this and are able to make informed decisions. The team will be assisting in the application process and thus offering a one-stop convenience for all the applicants,” said Mrs Nyoni. — @nqotshili
