University of Ibadan (UI) cancelled the 2019/2020 academic session and renamed it 2020/2021 academic session. The proposed calendar for 2019/2020 has been accordingly changed to 2020/2021.
The announcement came as the Senate of the institution approved a new calendar on Thursday.
The institution will resume on Monday, January 18 for the conclusion of the 2018/2019 academic session. At the completion of the aborted 2018/2019 session by February, there will be a three weeks holiday followed by the resumption of the 2020/2021 session.
The varsity’s academic calendar had earlier been disrupted due to the prolonged strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU) which started in March 2020 and ended in December.
In its new resolve, the institution said it will not be admitting undergraduate students who intend to gain admission into the school through the Joint Admission and Matriculation Board (JAMB) for 2021/2022.
The 2020/2021 academic session would now begin on 20 February and end on 2 December 2021.
