The University of Ghana (UG) and the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) have received advice from the Ghana Tertiary Education Commission (GTEC) to avoid holding them accountable for some of their programs’ lack of accreditation.
The Auditor-General cited the two schools for offering programs without proper accreditation and gave them advice on how to proceed.
Only 61 of the 360 programs offered by the KNUST are accredited, compared to 374 unaccredited programs at the University of Ghana.
The two academic institutions contend they have submitted an application for renewal, but GTEC’s management errors have caused the accreditation process to be delayed.
GTEC’s Director General, Professor Mohammed Salifu, responded to these allegations by emphasizing that his organization is not at fault.
Although the two public universities have made steps to correct the situation, fines will still be applied, according to Professor Mohammed Salifu.Follow us on Whatsapp , Instagram, Twitter , Facebook
