Appa Rao Podile, the Vice-Chancellor, UoH has approved the Task Force recommendation to permit about 148 final semester students of the Science Schools and Sarojini Naidu School to return to the campus for completion of laboratory/practice courses that have either been left incomplete from the last semester or have been postponed to the final semester. The list of students to return was identified by the respective academic units.
“The task force considered the requirements of academic units that have laboratory/practice components that need to be completed before students graduate in June 2021 and have prioritized the return of about 148 students. This is the beginning of a gradual process that will continue through the next couple of months. As the situation with Covid-19 starts improving and the Government issues guidelines for further unlocking of higher education activities, the University of Hyderabad hopes to facilitate the return of most students to normal academic work,” read a release from the varsity.
Earlier, the university has already enabled the return to the campus of over 320 research scholars (MPhil and PhD) across various Schools of study to enable them to carry out experimental work as well as timely submission of their theses.
The varsity said that for now, all theory classes, including for those who are being permitted to return to the campus for practical inputs, will continue online.
