The school year began at the University of Las Tunas (ULT)

The school year began at the University of Las Tunas (ULT) on Monday, with important readjustments in the teaching process, in the midst of a strict epidemiological safety protocol.

Las Tunas, Cuba.- M.Sc. Lucién Lozada Fonseca, head of the Institutional Communication Department at the House of High Studies, highlighted that the stage has been organized in a staggered manner and is subject to new adjustments, depending on the complexity of the epidemiological situation of the territory.

“This month we will be working face-to-face for the first two weeks. The first and fifth year students of the regular day course remain in the classrooms this week; the next, the second, third and fourth years of the same modality will attend. On Friday, February 5, those enrolled in the distance course will receive their classes.

“The last two weeks of February, students will remain in their municipalities of residence. The professors will give them the precise indications so that during that time they remain linked to training processes from their homes."

It was also announced that as of Friday the 5th, the Vladimir Ilyich Lenin campus will begin to function as an isolation center for suspected COVID-19 patients. For this reason, the students who need stay at the residence will be concentrated in the Pepito Tey campus, as well as the lunch service.

This readjustment does not imply modifications in the academic curriculums, although it does imply some reforms and a specific monitoring of students by the authorities of the municipal university centers, in conjunction with the professors and directors of the ULT campuses.
