UNIVERSIDAD DE MANILA RESUMES F2F CLASSES
AFTER almost two years of remote learning, the Universidad de Manila resumed limited face-to-face classes for its nursing and physical therapy programs on Thursday, November 18.
UDM started the in-person classes after it passed the inspection conducted by the Commission on Higher Education.
“We look forward to welcoming our Nursing and PT students back to a safe campus. Although these are the first two courses that will go on limited face-to-face, we are already preparing the facilities for our other programs as well,” UDM President Felma Carlos-Tria said.
“All our efforts are geared towards giving Merlions quality education in a safe and conducive environment,” she added.
Carlos-Tria assured the parents and students that safety measures will be strictly followed and all of the school’s full time employees are vaccinated against Covid19.
She noted that UDM has coordinated with the Department of Health and the Manila Health Department regarding the health protocols that it has adopted to minimize the risk of coronavirus infection in the campus.
“Our safety measures include following a rigid schedule for disinfection, students staying in the classroom, implementing a staggered and cyclical schedule to ensure that the students won’t be coming in and won’t be dismissed at the same time, providing alcohol dispensers in every room, and ensuring well-ventilated classrooms,” she stressed.
Meanwhile, the university is also preparing to open more facilities to accommodate other degree programs.
“Although these are the first two courses that will go on limited face-to-face classes, we are already preparing the facilities for our other programs as well,” Carlos-Tria said.
