Management of the University of Ghana says the “double track” academic calendar scheduled to commence mid-January 2021 will offer a safe and uninterrupted academic year.

The modular arrangement according to the university will be for the 2021 and 2022 academic years.

This, according to the university is to help minimize the spread of the coronavirus disease on campus among students, lecturers and staff. It is also to lessen the burden of accommodation for students on campus. Per the new arrangement, freshmen and final year students will be in school for nine weeks starting mid-January 2021, whilst level 200 and 300 will go between April and June.

Some students have expressed worries about the arrangement saying they are least excited about it. Some said the “double track” system is questionable because they do not know what it entails considering the workload which they think could affect their academic performance.
