Final year distant learning students at the University of Ghana are lamenting about the University’s inability to provide them with the necessary course modules and materials needed for the semester and have threatened the university’s authorities to embark on a demonstration.
According to the students, who spoke to Ghbase.com, the university has not made available the course modules and materials for the semester and so they are in a fix as they’ve not been able to learn anything because of this challenge. The aggrieved level 4oo students say that the authorities have gone ahead to draw up a timetable for the semester’s interim assessment (IA) which would start next week Monday. After the IA, there would be a revision week, then exams would follow right after.
Although the students have lamented several times about the issue, the university has been reluctant and always keeps giving them the same response that, they are ‘working on it ‘ but nothing has been done about the situation till now.
One of the aggrieved students told Ghbase.com “I mean how can we write IA when you have not made available the course modules and materials to us? How are we supposed to learn and write what you expect of us? It’s not like we didn’t pay our fees. It’s totally unfair for them to treat us this way. We want to learn and be able to pass our exams but it’s obvious the school is just interested in failing us.”
At the time of publishing this story, we tried to contact the authorities for their feedback but we didn’t get any response.
