Admission deadline refer to the period or time range allowed by an institution for fresh students or applicants to apply for any of the institutions academic courses base on their qualifications. After this period when the admission portal is closed, the management of this institution will decide if they have reach their quota or not and if there is need to extend the deadline for applicants.
In general, every university have their own time period to call out for new students but they are all scheduled and must be done in the same year according to Education codes. The tertiary education system in Ghana is in three folds, theses are the National Universities, Technical Universities, Training Colleges (College Educations and Nursing Colleges). Mostly, many universities do open their admission portal early April to either August or September ending.
National Universities like Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, University of Ghana, University of Education, University of Cape Coast and University of Development and others do open their admission portal on the stated date above.
Moreover, colleges of education also opens their application portal the same date as they are affiliated to the two education national universities in Ghana (university of education and university of cape coast) respectively.
