Classes Commence on August 24 for All Students

The 2020/2021 University of Botswana Academic Calendar has been revised in order to offset the disruptions caused by Greater Gaborone lockdown following an upsurge of new COVID-19 cases recently.

This means that registration for Semester 1 for all students begins on August 5, 2020 while the supplementary assessment period has been scheduled for August 17-21, 2020.

New undergraduate and post-graduate students are also to arrive for orientation and registration respectively on August 17 – 21, 2020. All continuing students start arrival on August 19 - 21, 2020 as all classes commence on August 24, 2020.

Meanwhile, given the disruptive impact of COVID-19 on normal University business and the need to adapt to the new normal of doing business, the university community and its stakeholders are advised to also utilize online platforms to access or render service to minimize disruptions. The University Community is further encouraged to adhere to all COVID-19 health protocols.
