Government to introduce centralized admissions system for universities

The government is set to introduce a centralised admission system for all public tertiary institutions.

This was proposed by a 9-member committee in its 2018 Tertiary Education Policy Document to the Ministry of Education.

Known as the Centralized University Admissions and Placement Service (CAPS), this system will replace the current stressful and expensive system of applying to different Universities.

Speaking at a stakeholders meeting held in Koforidua in the Eastern Region, Minister of State in charge of Tertiary Education, Professor Kwesi Yankah, gave his full backing to the proposal.

He explained that students will no longer have to apply to various universities but rather will now apply to one common platform like it’s done for the secondary schools.

He added that some major Ghanaian stakeholders in the education sector had travelled to the UK and Nigeria to understudy how the system works.

Among the stakeholders were some officials of the Ministry of Education, Vice Chancellors and Registrars.

Meanwhile, the centralized admissions system will be chaired by Prof. Adow Obeng, former Vice Chancellor of University of Cape Coast, Prof. Yankah revealed.

It is also expected to be formally inaugurated on Thursday, January 17, 2019.
