Edo University Iyamho says it has concluded arrangement for the Post UTME screening exercise for new students for the 2020/2021 academic session, having completed the 2019/2020 academic session online on her CANVAS/LSM occasioned by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The screening exercise for new students is slated for Thursday, September 24, 2020.
Registrar of the University, Dr (Mrs) Isoken Ogboro, noted that in line with the observance of all COVID-19 protocols of the NCDC, the school is fully ready to resume academic activities.
According to the Vice Chancellor of the University, Engr. Prof. Emmanuel Aluyor, the completion of the 2019/2020 academic session online was in line with University’s calendar which was hinged on the acquisition and utilization of the CANVAS – Learning Management System despite the COVID-19 pandemic.
According to him, Edo University Iyamho is amongst the very few universities in the world where academic activities did not shut down due to the Coronavirus, adding that this is in the belief that the university is set up to finding solutions to new challenges.
“Established with a mandate of producing leaders of tomorrow in various fields of learning, the University is poised to give your child that education you may be thinking of acquiring from the best universities around the world”, he said.
He, however, called on all qualified candidates who have obtained the minimum JAMB requirements for admission, including those who wrote this year’s WAEC and NECO examinations and are awaiting results to take advantage of the post UTME exercise that has been scheduled to hold on the 24th of September to join the screening process as their academic dreams are assured.
According to him, having being established by the Edo State government in 2016, Edo University Iyamho has just graduated her second batch of students with the conclusion of the 2019/2020 sessional examinations last week and have scheduled the 2020/2021 academic year to commence on the 16th of November 2020.
It will be recalled that the University have been commended by stakeholders in the education sector for the use of CANVAS/Leaning Management System which the University believe will continue to serve as assurance against academic disruptions should the pandemic persist.
