The Provost of the College of Distance Education, Professor Isaac Galyuon has announced the College will soon introduce PhD programmes as part of its post graduate module of graduate education. Professor Galyuon said a committee will soon be inaugurated to oversee the restructuring of the college’s mandates to enable it run more programmes available on the regular module.

He explained that this initiative is important recognizing the urgent quest for many people to graduate education in the country but are unable because of work and distance.

Minister of Education, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh has assured management of University of Cape Coast that his office will ensure the early completion of an ongoing School of Graduate Studies office complex at the university.

Dr. Opoku Prempeh gave the assurance upon a request made by the Vice Chancellor, Professor Joseph Ghartey Ampiah at the 17th Session of the 50th Congregation of the University for Graduate students last Saturday.

Staff of the Komenda College of Education say the college will near collapse if the Ministry of Education does not revise its educational reforms to reintroduce the general education programme which has been the main and most preferred programme of training for most students of the college since the college was established.
