Professor Kwesi Yankah, the Minister of State in Charge of Tertiary Education, has said Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) is well prepared to enrol a large number of the First Batch of Free SHS Beneficiaries for the 2020/2021 academic year. 

He said currently, an estimated number of 90,000 students were admitted into the various Universities. 

This number is expected to increase to 145,000 next academic year,  amid the Free SHS policy.

Prof. Yankah revealed this after inspecting ongoing infrastructure being constructed by the KNUST to accommodate the next batch of students.

He was impressed with the state of preparedness by the University, especially in the area of Science. 

Professor Yankah noted however that a challenge for the University is the inability to provide residential accommodation for students, and called on the University administration, to partner with the private sector to address the problem.
