The University of Zimbabwe (UZ) has advised First-Year Applicants that it is yet to complete its selection for 2020 First-Year Students.
In a statement, UZ said the delay was caused by the ongoing process aimed at migrating the country’s education system from the traditional Education 3.0 to the new Education 5.0. Applicants should expect feedback before the end of July.
Below is the statement in its entirety:
The University of Zimbabwe would like to advise all First-Year Applicants and the public that the University is yet to complete its selection for 2020 First-Year Students.
This is due to the ongoing programming process aimed at transforming the institution’s business model from the traditional Education 3.0 to the new Education 5.0. in line with the government thrust and national Vision 2030
The University expects to complete this process by the end of July 2020 and in time for the start of the new academic year.
The new applicants should, therefore, expect to receive feedback on the outcome of their applications before the end of July 2020.
All applicants will be given an opportunity to reconsider their choices in line with any of the new programmes they may prefer.
This is consistent with our earlier announcement in the original call for applications.
Our transformation process has, unfortunately, been delayed due to the unforeseen circumstances related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The University of Zimbabwe sincerely regrets any inconveniences caused during this process.
The transformation is a critical process as it is expected to offer more and better opportunities for our students and stakeholders.
