In all the University enrolled 70 students for Professional Programmes, 1,623 for Diplomas, 5,671 for Undergraduate and 883 for Postgraduate programmes.
The total number of registered fresh students stands at 8,247 and comprises 4,478 males and 3,769 females; bringing their male to female ratio for the 2020/2021 academic year to 54:46.
The matriculation ceremony for the postgraduate students was held a couple of weeks ago.
Among the fresh undergraduate students were six international students from countries in the West Africa subregion; namely Nigeria, Sierra Leone, the Ivory Coast, and Togo.
Professor Abednego Feehi Okoe Amartey, the Vice-Chancellor, UPSA, said this year’s intake represents a 38.44 percent increase from that of the previous year’s and undoubtedly, the highest admission in the history of the university.
He said the matriculation session was being held exclusively for the undergraduate and diploma fresh students of the University, because of the ravaging COVID-19 pandemic.
