Title: The educational reforms in Ghana and postgraduate studies at the University of Science and Technology, Kumasi.
Authors: Azumah, E.G.S.
Issue Date: 7-Sep-1996
Abstract: More than six (6) years after the publication of the University Rationalization Committee's recom mendations on postgraduate studies in Ghanaian Universities, very little has been achieved at the University of Science and Technology (UST), Kumasi, in terms of student intake, infrastruetural development and adequate funding. The propor- tion o postgraduate students to the total student pope ation from the 1988/89 to the 1993/94 academic year were still low (3.14%-7.57%), and ifr from the URC's recommended 25% target. Prior to the publication of the recommendations, the proportions were between 0.29% and 4.65%. These observations were attributable to problems like inadequate infrastructure for postgraduate students (including accommodation at Halls of Residence) inadequate/ obsolete equipment and financial constraints. Based on these facts, suggestions were made for the improvement in the conditions to make post- graduate programmes more attractive.
