KNUST Programs And Admission Requirements


In and around April every year, KNUST releases the entry requirements and guidelines for selecting bachelor, diploma programs, mature and postgraduate programs and distance learning programs at the university. This information was published by the Academic Affairs division at the registrar’s office. 

This article is information-packed, so without wasting much time, let’s dive in. 

Table of Contents
