UNIABUJA RELEASES APPROVED ACADEMIC CALENDAR FOR 3 SESSIONS

The university of Abuja released 3-years callender. This new Academic Calendar also introduces a Long Vacation Session where academic departments can rerun courses, especially GST courses, with a significant number of failures by students, to allow students another opportunity to re-take them before the next academic year. It is called Long Vacation Session and not “semester” because it is a session on its own within the academic year for rerun of some courses and NOT a third semester, since no new courses are offered and is not intended to shorten the number of years for regular students who generally pass their courses. Therefore, a student who has not offered and failed a course before would NOT be able to register for that course. The Long Vacation Session (LVS) would offer opportunities for students who have carried over some courses to try to pass them.

Academic Calendar 2021-2022 SESSION

The academic year consists of the First and the Second Semesters and One eight-week Summer or Long Vacation Session. Each Semester includes 15 weeks of instruction and two weeks of final examinations with minor adjustments where needed. The long vacation session includes a one-eight – one-six week- and two four week periods of instruction. Because of the prolonged 2020 Covid-19 pandemic lockdown, the University continues to make efforts to recover into a more regular academic calendar.
