Students of the University of Ghana (UG), Ghana Institute of Journalism (GIJ) and others would have to brace-up for increases in their school fees for the 2020/2021 academic year.
This is because management of the nation’s premier university, for instance, has announced between 12% and 13% rise in tuition fees. The latest decision by the university appears to be already causing some disquiet among students with many lamenting it could burden them, especially at a time the nation is yet to recover from the impact of Covid-19.
Students in the School of Sciences at the University are expected to pay GHȼ211 more from last year’s fees, bringing the new figure to GHȼ 1,899 from the previous GHȼ 1,688 for continuing students only.
Continuing students from at the School of Agriculture would have to cough up GHȼ 1,971 compared to the previous GHȼ 1,751.
