As you will all be aware the Covid-19 virus situation is a fast moving, worldwide pandemic. The world is facing a situation that no one has ever experienced before, and it is understandable that there is a lot of uncertainty. So, I wanted to take this opportunity to reassure you that everyone at Lancaster University Ghana and TAG has your wellbeing at heart and that we are doing everything we can to minimise the disruption to your education.
The Campus is now temporarily closed, following HE The President’s directive to all universities, and we have reduced all essential services to safeguard the well-being of our staff and students, but please be assured that we will continue to provide you with the support needed to continue your studies with Lancaster University Ghana.
All of the outstanding material for the Lent Term is now available on the Moodle platform, and by now your lecturers will have contacted you to provide details of online tutorial support.
For those students scheduled to take exams plans are now being finalised with regards to alternative strategies and these will be communicated to you shortly.
At this time, it is difficult to predict when the campus will re-open, so we are putting in place plans to deliver the Summer Term remotely. As the Provost of Lancaster University Ghana, I have been immensely proud of the way the Academic Faculty have responded to this crisis and I know your lecturers are currently working very hard to prepare all of next terms materials for online delivery. We are confident that this exercise will be completed very soon and the details of this will also be communicated to you shortly. We will also be updating our website regularly so please keep checking this for details.
Hopefully most of you will be at home and supported by your families, but if any student is experiencing hardship please contact Mr Divine Amenyah in Student Affairs.
If you haven’t already done so, could I also request that ALL students contact the Registry to provide them with details of your current location and contact details.
I want to thank you for your patience and understanding during this difficult time and look forward to seeing all of you on campus again as soon as possible. In the meantime, please follow the official advice from the World Health Organisation and the Ghanaian Government…AND STAY SAFE.
Professor Malcolm Peter McIver
Provost – Lancaster University Ghana
