An undergraduate certificate or diploma is a focused, structured and interrelated set of courses that enhances the undergraduate experience in an emerging academic area, addresses a professional development need, or provides step-up preparation for a degree programme.
An undergraduate degree is the foundation for a future career and provides a thorough grounding in the student’s chosen subject. It is the first degree – usually a Bachelor of Arts (BA) or Bachelor of Science (BSc).
The University offers various undergraduate certificates, diplomas and degree courses. The 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.
