According to the latest update given by the President of Ghana, Nana Akufo-Addo on Sunday, August 16, 2020. All continuing students of the University of Cape Coast (UCC), University of Health and Allied Sciences (UHAS), technical universities, Teacher and Nursing Training colleges who are yet to complete their academic year are to return to school on August 24, 2020 to complete the academic year.
This was made known with the following statement: “Through online learning portals, almost all continuing students in our universities have completed their studies for the academic year with the exception of the University of Cape Coast, University of Health and Allied Sciences, technical universities and some other colleges. After extensive stakeholder consultations, the decision has been taken for continuing students of these tertiary institutions to return to school on 24th August to finish their academic year.”

“Just as was done for final year students who returned to school, government through the Ministry of Education and the Ghana Education Service will ensure that all these tertiary institutions are disinfected.”
“after extensive stakeholder consultations, the decision has been taken for continuing students in these tertiary institutions to return to school, on 24th August, to finish their academic year.”
This is to ensure the completion of the year’s academic work. Whilst most tertiary institutions in the country have completed their academic programmes for the 2019/21 academic years through online learning and exams, a few universities including the University of Cape Coast, the University of Health and Allied Sciences and the technical universities are yet to do so.
Reopening Of Pre Tertiary Schools (Basic Schools, JHS And SHS)
The Ministry of Education continues to engage the Ghana Education Service (GES) and all relevant stakeholders to conclude discussions on the modalities surrounding the reopening of our pre-tertiary schools. I will communicate, in due course, the decisions that will be reached from these consultations.
