University of Ibadan, Ibadan

Office of the Vice-Chancellor

Special Release

Sequel to the outcome of the Special Meeting of the Senate of the University of Ibadan held on 5 January 2018, the Management hereby informs the public, especially its undergraduate students, parents and all stakeholders that the Second Semester Examinations for the 2016/2017 Academic Session will commence as scheduled from 8 January 2018. All arrangements have been put in place to ensure the seamless conduct of the examinations and the relative comfort of our students on campus despite the national industrial action embarked upon by members of SSANU, NAAT and NASU.

Despite the peculiarity of the prevailing situation on campus, occasioned by the on-going industrial action, the University Management is determined to always act in the best interest of its students. It is our desire to conclude this session as scheduled so that our final year students can proceed to the next phase of their life endeavours. For instance, it will enable most of our final year students to be mobilised for the National Youth Service Corp Scheme and our graduating Law students proceed to the Law School. It is unfortunate that our students have hitherto been denied many opportunities owing to elongated sessions occasioned by disruptions in the academic calendar.

The University, therefore, seeks the maximum cooperation and understanding of all students and assures relevant stakeholders that it has made provisions for security and the supply of essential services on campus for the duration of the Second Semester Examinations. All students are advised to have proof of identification and be security conscious.

Students are requested to visit their Departments and Faculties for the Examinations Timetable.

Kindly disregard any information to the contrary.
