UEW Prepares To Enroll More Free SHS Beneficiaries

The University of Education Winneba (UEW) is putting in place practical steps to provide physical infrastructure to enable it to be fully ready to enrol and accommodate many beneficiaries of the free senior high school programme.

Reverend Father Professor Anthony Afful-Broni, acting Vice Chancellor, said for the starters, the university was constructing four sets of 500 capacity lecture pavilions at the Winneba campus, which were expected to be completed before the beginning of the new academic year.

The project, which is in addition to the ongoing classroom projects, would be replicated at the College of Technology Education (COLTEK) and other campuses of the university.

Professor Afful-Broni said management was determined to increase the intake of students from the 2018/19 academic year as part of the desire to ensure that as many qualified young men and women as possible, received high quality university education.

He was speaking at the second session of the 22nd congregation of the university, at COLTEK in Kumasi on Saturday.

A total of 3,452 from 14 study centres as well as 620 sandwich and 102 post graduate students from the northern sector of the country, were awarded with degrees and diplomas.

Professor Afful-Broni said UEW is a strong believer of the government’s agenda for the education sector and would do everything to support and to enable many Ghanaians acquire quality higher education to speed up socio-economic transformation of the country.
