Dear UJ Student

Term 2 will start on Monday, 20 April 2020, and as you have already been informed, all teaching and learning for the term will happen online. If your modules are on Blackboard you must go into each of your modules regularly to check messages, and make sure you do all the activities, assignments and assessments.

During this week (14 to 17 April), we are going to support you in areas you might still need help in getting set up and ready to learn online.
