About Us



Q:
Is it easy to transfer between schools?
A:

While it is possible to take courses from other departments as prescribed by your programme, transfer between the undergraduate departments and schools is not guaranteed.  Students should apply directly to their intended department as a freshman rather than attempt to make an internal transfer later in their undergraduate career.
 



Q:
• Can I apply to multiple Undergraduate Schools at UCC, or do I have to apply to a specific Undergraduate School or program?
A:

All applicants will select one of the undergraduate programmes of their choice. You are encouraged to make three choices from the university’s programmes from which you could be selected into one based on your aggregate score.
 



Q:
• Do I have to pay an application fee?
A:

Once you purchase the application form you do not have to pay any application fee for your application to be considered.  
 



Q:
• Does the University accept alternative qualifications to the WASSCE for undergraduate degree courses?
A:

The University accepts a range of alternative qualifications in addition to standard WASSCE. If you require further guidance, please contact the office of the Deputy Registrar Academic, UCC.  Their admissions staff will be happy to assist you.
 



Q:
• How do I apply for an undergraduate programme in your department?
A:

For any of our degree programmes an application must be made online. However, the scratch card to use will need to be purchased at the university offices in the country and other designated offices. This information is advertised every year in the national dailies as well as the university website any time from January each year.  Full details about the application process can therefore be found at the university website.
 



Q:
• Is housing guaranteed for freshmen?
A:

The University of Cape Coast has a general policy of providing accommodation for all undergraduate freshmen. Your admission will therefore come with a Hall of affiliation and the required fee for your accommodation. After the first year, students are not guaranteed accommodation in the University’s Halls of Residence. However, there are several private hostels within walking distances from the university.



Q:
• What are the career prospects in Mathematics Education, and Science Education programmes run in our department?
A:

Within the country, our sub-region and across the world the demand for increased proficiency in mathematics and the sciences among students at all the pre-tertiary levels continues to grow. This growth also means that job prospects for pre-university mathematics, ICT, science teachers, as well as tutors for the health training institutions continue to be excellent.



Q:
• What types of programmes can I pursue after obtaining a first degree in any of your the undergraduate programmes?
A:

After successful completion, graduates can pursue further studies in the following respective areas:
