The University of Benin (UNIBEN) is set to hold its virtual matriculation ceremony for the 2020/2021 academic session on August 10.


NAN reports that Benedicta Ehanire, the varsity’s public relations officer, broke the news in a statement issued in Benin, on Tuesday.

According to her, only two selected students from each of the faculties would be physically present at the venue of the exercise.

She added that other matriculating students would participate on Zoom via links sent to their portals.


“The virtual matriculation of newly admitted students into the University of Benin (UNIBEN) for the 2020/2021 academic session holds on Tuesday 1 Aug. 10, 2021, at 11 a.m,” the statement read.

“Only two selected students each from the faculties are to be physically present at the venue of the matriculation.

“The rest of the matriculating students will be sent zoom links via their portals for their participation.’’


Ehanire added that members of staff and students are to constantly wear their face masks, as the COVID-19 protocol would be strictly enforced by the university.

The institution resumed for the 2019/2020 academic session in February — a few months after varsities across the country were shut due to the coronavirus pandemic and strike by the Academic Staff Union of Universities (ASUU).
