University of Ghana reduces fees by 2% for selected students
Earlier, YEN.com.gh reported that the University of Ghana, Legon announced a 2% discount on approved fees for the 2022/2023 academic year.
However, the discount was not for all students but only for full fee-paying programmes, the Accra City Campus and distance education programmes.
The University explained that it was reducing the fees only for the stated academic year to lessen the burden on students because of the current economic challenges facing the country.
The reduction was also a heed to the appeal by the Parliamentary Select Committee on Education for a one-time discount of 2% on the 15% fee increase approved by Parliament for the 2022/2023 academic year.
