Foreign students in final year free to finish course online – Vice Chancellors Ghana

Though Ghana's borders will be opened for final year foreign students to return to complete the semester, Vice-Chancellors Ghana says students who feel unsafe can still remain in their countries and complete academic work.

Speaking to Citi News, the Chairman of Vice-Chancellors Ghana, Professor Ebenezer Oduro Owusu said there will be special teaching and learning arrangements for persons who wish to remain outside Ghana.

Some tertiary institutions have transitioned to online learning because of restrictions brought on by the novel coronavirus pandemic.

"If for any reason, an international student just like any Ghanaian student feels he or she is safe wherever he or she is and has no problem with access, he or she is free to stay and go through the semester," Prof Owusu noted.
