A section of students In Higher Institutions to opt for dead year
Today, November 1, 2021, a small portion of students reported back at their respective institutions after nearly two years of lockdown.
Most of the Universities, there was a low turn up compared to the recent hiped uproars on media for schools re-opening.
Many of the students are in panic following the combined procedures that several universities have put up for one to graduate. Besides the issue of tuition, there are so many activities that are happening alongside the others.
At The Islamic University In Uganda, Kampala Campus (IUIU KC) students will do exams for two quarters this November, do research and internship and as well pay for tuition for the two quarters. To Joshua Masiko, a law student at the IUIU KC, it’s close to impossible.
“ The pressure is too much for me to handle, I have to work for my tution and again cater for my needs. I haven’t finished research plus internship yet I again have to continue with the lecture sessions, I think working on my pace after applying for a dead semester is the perfect choice for me.”
Many other students seem to suffer the same as the universities too fight to pay off the staff that have been working from home.
