University of Ghana

The management of the University of Ghana has charged its four colleges to submit proposals on creative ways to admit more applicants to the university, as well as offer quality education at all levels.

The Vice Chancellor of the university, Prof. Ebenezer Oduro Owusu, said the move had become necessary because of the large number of prospective students who are turned away annually.

Out of the 41,447 undergraduate applications the university received this year, it could admit only 23,041 to its main campus, Korle Bu campus, Accra City campus and distance learning.

“Large numbers of prospective students apply to the university yearly, and each time, we are faced with the painful decision of having to turn down the applications of many otherwise well-qualified applicants due to limitations of our staff and facilities,” Prof. Owusu said during the 2017 matriculation of the university last Saturday.
