Direct Applicants

Direct Applicants are applicants to be selected on the strength of their Senior High
School results. They usually do not write the University’s Entrance Examinations
except for programmes whose entry requirements so demand.

Mature Applicants

Mature Applicants are those required to pass the University’s Entrance
Examinations before selection. They are applicants who are 25 years and above
and who, although usually have WASSCE/SSSCE/GCE certificates, cannot obtain
direct admission because they do not have the required passes.

They are admitted based on their performance in the Entrance Examinations.

Post-Diploma Applicants

Post-Diploma Applicants are applicants who have Higher National Diploma or
equivalent Tertiary Diploma Certificates. They usually seek admission to pursue
degrees in their previous areas of study.

When applying to the Universities, you need to understand the kind of applicant you wish to be so that you don’t apply as a wrong applicant to the right university.
