How Much Is the University of Ghana School Fees?

One of the major questions intending students want to know before seeking to be admitted into an institution is how much it would cost them. University of Ghana tuition, like that of any other school, is dependent on several factors like the course of study, level of study (Degree, Masters. Ph.D.), and nationality of applicants.

All students should note that the tuition fee is an integral part of the registration process. Thus, students must pay at least a minimum required fees before they are allowed to undertake the academic and residential registration. The fees are paid yearly, however, there are provisions for students to pay in two installments; payments by installment should sum up to at least 60% at the time of registration in the first semester and 100% by the second semester.
