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
