An infographic released by UniversNews has indicated that application for admission to the University of Ghana has witnessed an about 44% increase between the 2015/2016 academic year and the 2018/2019 academic year.
From receiving 35,630 total applications for admission for the 2015/2016 academic year, the figures shot up to 51,321 applications.
Also, the infographic suggested that the acceptance rate of the University stood at about average 57%, considering the years under review.
Whilst the rate at which applications are received from prospective students of the University are increasing, questions have been raised on whether facilities for effective teaching and learning have witnessed a similar rise.
The figures were taken from matriculation speeches of the Vice-Chancellor since 2015 to 2018.
UniversNews estimates that applications received by the University will exceed 55,000.
The University is expected to release the list of successful applicants for the 2019/2020 academic year in the coming weeks.
