More than 600 academic programmes were not accredited at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) and the University of Ghana. The schools’ accreditation “expired or required re-accreditation during the time under evaluation,” according to the Auditor General report for 2021.
“Out of the 360 programmes offered by the University, only 61 have been accredited,” the report’s findings reveal. “190 have been referred to the National Accreditation Board (NAB) for accreditation and reaccreditation, and 109 have not yet been forwarded to NAB for accreditation.”
Therefore, in order to prevent NAB consequences, the Auditor-General has “advised to Management to halt conducting programmes that are not accredited or have had their accredited certifications expire, unless they are accredited or reissued.”
KNUST was also asked to “liaise with Ghana Tertiary Education Commission (GTEC) to take retrospective accreditations to cover all the non-accredited certificates issued to students.”
According to KNUST URO, the Auditor General’s report was discussed extensively at the Public Account Committee on 21st July 2021 and all those issues were answered by management.
