Dear Students at the GSB&L,
Due to the nation-wide lockdown, the University academic programmes are in recess. At this stage, there is a plan for all UKZN, including GSB&L academic programmes, to resume online/remote from 4 May 2020. (Specifically, that means that all modules that were originally set to start in April will be postponed until the semester starts on 4 May 2020). The new sessional (semester) dates and online lecture timetables will be distributed when they become available. The contents of the remaining 1st semester modules will be uploaded onto Moodle and it is envisaged that these modules will be offered using an online mode of delivery. You will receive updated information as it becomes available.
