A joint team from the Academic Affairs Directorate, Counselling Unit and Faculty of Accounting and Finance of the University of Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA) has participated in a two-day Career Guidance and Counselling fair held at the Presbyterian Boys’ Senior High School (PRESEC) at Legon in Accra.
The move forms part of efforts by the University to attract prospective students at the second cycle level while offering them an insight into the activities of the university.
The team educated students on strategies to enhance their learning and how to successfully write and pass the upcoming WASSCE.
The students were also advised to eschew any deviant behaviour or acts that may be detrimental to their growth and progress.
Prospective students had opportunity to interact with UPSA Admission Officers as well as career counselors who gave students firsthand information on UPSA programmes, subject qualifications, admission procedures, possible career paths and prospects.
They also took students through available scholarships and other educational opportunities accessible to UPSA students including the free-tuition policy on all professional programmes which enables students to graduate with both an academic degree and a professional certificate.
The annual PRESEC career fair brings together hundreds of students, local and international businesses, and alumni of PRESEC as well as recruiting teams from the various tertiary institutions.
It is aimed at prepping final year students for the world of work and guide them on their future programmes of study.
