The Executive Committee of the University of Ghana has extended the University’s academic calendar by four weeks.

This is in response to calls by University lecturers to make up for the time lost to the three-week strike action by UTAG.  The University will now vacate on January 6, 2011 instead of December 11, 2010.

The arrangement however allows students who wish to celebrate the Christmas and New Year Festivities to do so.

Speaking to Citi News, the Director of Academic Affairs of the University of Ghana, E.A. Amartey said the extension however excludes foreign students although they risk traveling for the limited vacation.

The new arrangement leaves students with only three weeks of vacation instead of seven.

Meanwhile, the Executive Committee of the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology KNUST will meet on Wednesday October 27, to decide on an extension of the academic calendar.

The Public Relations Officer of the KNUST, Solomon Pamford told Citi News it is mostly likely the calendar will be extended by two weeks.
