Ghana’s premier University, the University of Ghana is set to hold its maiden virtual congregation on Thursday, July 30, 2020, at 10 am for final year students.

The virtual congregation is as a result of the outbreak of COVID-19 and forms part of measures to curb the spread of the virus.

In a statement signed by the Registrar of the University, Mercy Haizel-Ashia said the ceremony will first be held for final year students of the School of Law and students who took supplementary examinations at the University of Ghana Schools of Medicine and Dentistry.

According to her, this is to enable them to have their certificates to continue with their professional training starting from August 2020.

“The decision to hold a virtual ceremony was based on the current safety guidelines for meetings in large numbers. This virtual congregation will be a good opportunity for the University to test run the idea of a virtual congregation, for small groups of graduating students,” parts of the statement read.

Affected students have however been advised to register.

Moreover, graduation details for all other final year students will be communicated after the completion of the university’s examination processes.
