University Of Ghana Students Angry Over Increased Fees

There is growing disquiet among continuing students of the University of Ghana over the rise in their fees for the 2017/2018 academic year.

 

 

Each year, the university’s increases fees based on prevailing inflation rate plus 2%.

 

 

But some of the students who have been speaking to ‘Citi News’ say the current fees are expensive and are appealing for a reduction.

 

 

One of them noted that, students offering distance education courses will go through unbearable hardship following the increases.

 

 

“Even in distance education, last semester they paid GH2,499; the new academic calendar their fees is GHc2800. That is a GHc300 difference…we cannot pay it.”

 

 

Another student also said taking the current inflation rate in consideration, the fees should have decreased instead.
