Due to the recent increase in COVID-19 cases the Namibia University of Science and Technology has suspended all face-to-face classes until further notice, moving all classes online. The University said that as “the bulk of teaching activities for the first semester have already been concluded,… , a minimal interruption to the university’s operations is anticipated”. NUST however said that the continuous face-to-face test and assessment schedules for the rest of the first semester will however remain as is and should be adhered to accordingly. This is to ensure that students’ identities can be verified and avoid academic misconduct and further ensure compliance with the regulatory bodies that accredit the University’s qualifications.
