Over 70,000 new students will be admitted to the University of Education, Winneba, for the 2020/2021 academic year.
This was disclosed by the Vice-Chancellor of the University, Prof. Anthony Afful-Broni.
He says that the numbers include the first batch of free Senior High School beneficiaries.
In a media engagement, he mentioned that the university is making conscious efforts to receive the estimated number.
“We are going to take a total of about 70,000 students. It may even be more. But as far as facilities are concerned, we are purchasing new services and enhancing our equipment.
Professor Anthony Afful-Broni also indicated that the university was preparing to employ more teaching and non-teaching staff to ensure a smooth running of the academic year.
“We are doing well to employ more competent IT people, even lecturers, and administrators to support the delivery of a very effective and robust academic programme for our university,” he added.
According to Prof. Afful-Broni, the university has so far received over 52,000 applications from prospective students seeking admission for the 2020/2021 academic year.
