UPSA attracts hundreds of prospective students at 2024 Education Fair

The University of Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA) attracted the attention of hundreds of prospective students at the just-ended 2024 Education Fair (EduFair).

The prospective students, who said they had heard about UPSA and the caliber of its alumni, interacted with admissions officers to seek further information about the institution and its programmes.

The Director of Academic Affairs, Mr Anthony Afeadie urged them to take advantage of the University’s dual qualification policy by enrolling in UPSA for the 2024/2025 academic year.

He explained that the UPSA dual qualification initiative allows students who are enrolled in undergraduate programmes to concurrently pursue and receive free tuition in any professional course of their choice – including ICAG, ACCA, CIB, CIM, ICSA and CIMA.

The policy is aimed at equipping students to graduate with both an academic degree and a professional certificate.
