The university recently opened its residential halls to all students

In-person classes and exams of Dhaka University (DU) are set to resume from Sunday, after a hiatus of one-and-half-years due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

As per the decision of the Academic Council on October 7, the DU authorities are set to welcome students back to the university classrooms.

DU Vice-Chancellor (VC) Prof Md Akhtaruzzaman is expected to pay a visit to the classrooms of the Arts Building around 11am.

On October 5, the university opened its residential halls to fourth year (Honours) and master’s students.

Later on October 10, they did the same for the third year (honours), second, and first-year students who received at least one dose of the Covid-19 vaccine.

DU Pro-VC Prof ASM Maksud Kamal said that teachers would have to conduct at least 60% in-person classes and the remaining could be conducted virtually.

“If any department or faculty member wants to conduct 100% of the class physically maintaining proper health protocol, it’s up to them,” he added.

“All the practical classes will be held in-person. Departments can divide the students into multiple sections to conduct practical classes to maintain health protocol,” Prof Maksud said.

Classes can be conducted on Saturdays if necessary, he furthered.

The dorms had remained shut along with suspension of academic activities since March 20 last year, following the outbreak of Covid-19 in Bangladesh, which prompted the government to shut down educational institutions across the country.
