Management of the University of Ghana, Legon, has increased its academic fees for the 2022-2023 academic year by 14 per cent.
This follows the passage of the Fees and Charges (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act, 2022 (Act 1080) by Parliament of Ghana.
In a statement from the Ghana Tertiary Education Commission (GTEC) dated December 16, 2022, this allows a 15% increase across board for all institutions covered by the Act.
