 “In view of the current trends of infections and the need to ensure staff and students safety, the University of Nairobi will continue to dispense its services using online platforms.  The online teaching and learning, online admissions, online exams and virtual graduation will continue until such a time when we shall begin to see a decline in number of cases or when the experts will advice that it is safe to resume on campus learning,” said Prof Kiama.

“The Academic Division will issue joining instructions and guidelines for conducting the online orientation for the class of 2020/2021-First Year soon. The continuing students will also commence the new academic year virtually in September. The Senate is going to deliberate and provide specific dates.” He added.
