University of Ghana Organizes it's first Virtual Matriculation Ceremony

On 5th February 2021, the University of Ghana organized its maiden college-based virtual matriculation ceremony for freshers for the 2020/2021 academic year.

The Vice-Chancellor’s address, delivered on his behalf by Provosts of the four Colleges, provided the following enrolment statistics: for the 2020/2021 academic year, the University has enrolled 15,020 undergraduate students, of which 49.5% are female and 50.5% male. This breaks down into College of Health Sciences, 652; College of Basic and Applied Sciences, 2,355; College of Education, 3,368; and College of Humanities, 8,645.

Welcoming the international students, the Vice-Chancellor noted that the COVID-19 pandemic has negatively impacted international students enrolment for the 2020/2021 academic year, with only 70 international students registered, compared to 409 in the previous academic year. He indicated that majority of the international students were from the African sub-region, the rest coming from Asia, Europe, and America. He urged the foreign students to enjoy their stay and studies in the University of Ghana.

The Vice-Chancellor also reported that the Student Financial Aid Office has provided full or partial scholarships to needy but brilliant students of the University; and that during the 2019/2020 academic year, the University awarded a total of GH¢ 2,796,519.00 to 981 students. He expressed sincere gratitude to donors for their regular support and continuous donation.

The Vice-Chancellor encouraged the students to strive for excellence and adhere to University rules and regulations. He also admonished them to observe all COVID-19 protocols.

The Matriculation Oath was administered to representatives of the students by the College Secretaries on behalf of the Registrar. In turn, the student representatives delivered expectation speeches on behalf of their cohorts and symbolically signed the Matricula on behalf of their cohorts.

However, all freshers are to sign the online Matricula, which is a statutory requirement for all enrollees.

Meet Elizabeth Owusua who works as a lawyer by day, and a Nurse by night

Meet Elizabeth Owusua: As a child, her dream was to be a nurse, lawyer, and a fashion designer with no idea about how it was going to happen.

Years on, this young lady, known as Elizabeth Owusua, has defied all odds to fulfill her dreams. Today, she works as a lawyer during the day and nurse at night.

The post by Elizabeth Owusua which has been making the rounds on social media since popular blogger, Abena Manokekame shared it on her page saw the former narrate her story which she attributes to God’s faithfulness.

“As a child, I always wanted to be a nurse, lawyer, and a fashion designer all at the same time with no idea how they were going to happen because of my background.

Well, I attended senior high school at Mfantsiman girls which helped shaped my entire being.

From there I went to the Nursing and Midwifery Training College at Korle Bu where I graduated with a Diploma in Nursing in 2008 and started working as a nurse in 2010 after national service.

I continued to Central University College where I did top-up for a Bsc Degree in Nursing alongside work and graduated in 2013.

In 2014 I applied to GIMPA law faculty for an LLB and I got admitted which I did along with work mostly night shifts and gained admission to the Law school in 2017 after graduating from GIMPA and finally was called to the Ghana Bar in October 2019.”
