Universities across Ghana have begun admission processes for students who wish to gain admission for 2020-2021 academic year.
As a result of the outbreak of COVID -19, admission processes for this year has suffered delays and setbacks as all.
Educational institutions were asked to shut down to mitigate the spread of the coronavirus. Thus, most institutions have extended their application deadline from June-July to the end of September to provide windows of opportunity for applicants who missed out initially.
Tertiary institutions such as Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), the University of Cape Coast (UCC), the Accra Technical University (ATU), the Ghana Institute of Journalism (GIJ) and the University of Ghana, Legon have all published admission notices for potential students in the newspapers and their online platforms.
The University Relations Officer of the KNUST, Dr Daniel Norris Bekoe, said, “Admissions are ongoing for both postgraduate and undergraduate students and we have even extended the deadline to September 30, 2020, because of the uncertainty in the country as a result of the COVID-19.
“In fact, for those who are writing the WASSCE, we told them long ago that they could apply with only their index numbers. When the results are out, we would pick the details from the West Africa Examinations Council (WAEC) and then consider and offer admission,” he said.
All prospective students looking to get admitted into various programs can visit all online platforms of these schools to check the admission processes and deadlines.
