Prospective students to the University of Professional Studies, Accra have been advised to take advantage of the University’s dual qualification policy.
The UPSA dual qualification scheme allows students who are enrolled on undergraduate programmes to concurrently pursue and receive free tuition in any professional course of their choice – i.e. ICAG, ACCA, CIB, CIM, ICSA, CIMA, among others.
The policy is aimed at helping students to graduate with both an academic degree and a professional chartered certificate.
Speaking to second cycle students at two separate Career Guidance and Mentorship fairs held at the St. Thomas Aquinas Senior High School in Accra and the Aburi Girls Senior High School, the Senior Assistant Registrar in charge of Admissions & Graduation, Mr Denis Attuquayefio said the UPSA is ready to welcome students who excel in the 2022 West African Senior School Certificate Examination (WASSCE) scheduled for August/September this year.
“UPSA would not only prepare you for the dynamic world of work but also position you to become a globally competitive graduate,” Mr Attuquayefio said.
The team from UPSA, which included Mrs Joyce Sackey and Mr Thomas Appiah Kubi Asante from the Academic Affairs Directorate and the Institute of Professional Studies (IPS) introduced the students to various programmes being offered by UPSA.
They also took them through the admission and application process, general requirements and specific cut-off points for respective programmes, as well as career/job opportunities available to them after graduation.
The students were also given information on available scholarships and other educational opportunities accessible to UPSA students such as internships, exchange programs and professional mentorship.
Students were also given the opportunity to ask relevant questions.
The visit to the two schools on Wednesday and Thursday, June 1st and 2nd, 2022, is the third in the series this year after a similar visitation to PRESEC-Legon in April 2022.
