Universiti Islam Sultan Sharif Ali (UNISSA) yesterday resumed teaching-learning sessions for programmes which require physical evaluation, such as mooting for students from the Faculty of Syariah and Law.

At this stage, teaching-learning at the campus is conducted in phases. With a minimum of 40 per cent of the usual capacity, each session is conducted for only two hours or less.

Staff, students and visitors adhered to strict new norms issued by the Ministry of Health (MoH) as part of the de-escalation plan which include temperature checks, strict social distancing, the scanning of the BruHealth QR code and conducting self-assessment when entering and leaving the campus.

Currently, all co-curriculum and social activities have been suspended. The university’s residential college is still closed, except to international students amid strict surveillance and monitoring. In early March, UNISSA suspended all teaching and learning, while taking to online platforms as an alternative venue for students to continue their study session.

The university also provided de-escalation guidelines to its staff and students to exercise social responsibility, physical distancing and self-hygiene for the safety and well-being of UNISSA’s community.
