Mr Samuel Okudjeto Ablakwa, Deputy Minister of Education in charge of Tertiary, said the National Accreditation Board and the National Council for Tertiary Education had drawn-up new guidelines for the accreditation of new universities to meet standards.

He explained that for a new university to be approved for accreditation, “it must more or less show that it is going to give priority to science and technology in line with Government’s determination to implement and enforce the 60:40 policy guidelines”.

Mr Ablakwa said this during the Nineth Congregation of the first batch of Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) graduates of the Accra Institute of Technology (AIT) at the weekend which also saw the graduation of 240 Bachelor degree holders

He said the policy guidelines were to give priority to science, mathematics and engineering programmes in the tertiary institutions. Read more
