The fresh students who cut across undergraduate and diploma programmes were welcomed in a covid-19 controlled environment. A majority of the newly admitted students joined the ceremony virtually.
The number of students admitted for the 2020/2021 academic year represents a 38.44% increase from the previous years, the university has said.
The school noted that out of the 8,247 registered students, 4,478 of them are males and 3,769 are females.
Speaking at the ceremony, the Vice-Chancellor of the university, Professor Abednego F. O. Amartey advised the students to abide by the disciplinary codes of the school.
Touching on infrastructure, the Vice-Chancellor announced that two new hostels will soon be completed to accommodate over 3,200 students, a development he said will ease the accommodation challenges facing the school.
