IAUE Resumption Date for Completion of 2019/2020 Academic Session

All the staff, students, and visitors of the institution (IAUE) must wear facemasks and have their temperatures checked at the gate of the university before entering the campus. This is to be done in response to the COVID 19 guidelines for the re-opening of schools. Also, they are all required to carry hand sanitizers and wash their hands at various points provided for the washing of hands within the campus.
It was further announced that lecturers must make sure that during lectures, students are wearing their facemasks and maintaining social distancing. Lecturers of the university are also to adopt blended learning or dual-mode (online and offline) teaching to enable them to cover the scheme of work.
Lecturers who have a large number of students will have to break the class into smaller groups and teach in batches in order to avoid jampacking of the students thereby violating the precautionary measures. Lecturers are also advised by the school management to space their lectures and hold some on weekends if they find it convenient so as to reduce workload and pressure.
