A total of One Hundred and Seventy One (171) students have been admitted to pursue various second degree programmes offered by UDS for the 2017/2018 academic year. This was disclosed in a speech delivered by the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. G.A. Teye at a Matriculation Ceremony held on Saturday, August 12, 2017 in Tamale.
The VC also announced the establishment of a Centre for Distance and Continuing Education (with centers initially located within the university catchment area) with a view to allow Teachers and other Professionals living in seemingly distant communities to obtain degrees and diplomas that are relevant to their career objectives.
He admonished the fresh men and women to discard the notion that pursuing sandwich programmes was an easier path to obtaining higher degrees, stating emphatically that the degrees of the University for Development Studies are only awarded to those who are found worthy in character and learning.
The matriculation oath was administered by the Registrar, Dr. A.B.T Zakariah.
