Diploma and Certificate Programmes
For admissions into the Diploma and Certificate programmes, applicants must obtain the following: 4 Credits including English Language at WASSCE/GCE ’O’ Level, except for the Certificate in Population Analysis and Social Statistics, the Special Certificate in Mass Communication, and the Special Certificate in Library Archive and Information Studies.
The University entry requirements for degree programmes are five credits with a minimum of C5 in English Language at the General Certificate Examination (GCE) ’O’ Level and West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE), obtained in not more than two sittings. In addition, applicants must satisfy faculty and departmental requirements for admission into the various faculties and departments.
In the case of the GCE ‘O’ Level Exams, only grades ranging from 1 to 6 are recognized as GCE ’O’ Level credit passes; for WASSCE it is A1-C6, while for the Associate Examinations Board (London GCE ‘O’ Level) only C or better is recognized.
Post Graduate & Professional Studies
Admission into the Postgraduate School is done twice a year, in the First and Second semesters. For a Masters degree programme (e.g. MA, MSc, M Phil, MBA, MFA) the admission is a two-step process. First, you must possess a Bachelor’s Degree (Division II or better) and second, you must be accepted by the Institute or Department in which you wish to pursue the course. For the PhD programme, the minimum entry qualification is an M Phil (or its equivalent) in the relevant area of specialisation.
