In a statement on Friday, 2 October, the MOHE said, "All student registration matters can be done online, as well as aspects of teaching and learning until new announcements about it is made."

The ministry's decision was because of concerns over the health, safety, and well-being of students, staff, and all parties involved in the COVID-19 pandemic

Students who are already on campus and are studying can still remain while respective universities are asked to help them.

It is also recommended for all institutes of higher learning to delay any programmes or activities involving gatherings on the campus.

MOHE has negotiated with airlines to reschedule students' flights returning to the campus

The airline companies have agreed to re-schedule the student flights until 31 December this year as a result of those negotiations.
