The Ho Technical University has held its 27th matriculation ceremony to usher in the new batch of students admitted into the University this year.
The university according to records admitted 1,503 applicants out of 1,822 who applied to study at the institution for the 2019/2020 academic year.
The Vice-Chancellor of the University Prof. Ben Honyenuga revealed that some applicants have not been given admission due to their inability to meet the University’s requirements.
He explained that majority of the matriculants are undergraduates who are pursuing programs leading to either Higher National Diploma and Degree in their preferred courses while others are postgraduate students.
Mr. Honyenuga further advised the students to be of good behavior and protect the reputable image the university has acquired over the years.
He charged them to live according to the core values of the school which, he said, includes commitment to excellence and living a life of integrity and accountability as prospective leaders of the country.
He added that the school, for its part, is committed to equipping the matriculants with the needed skills that will make them productive on the job market.
Prof. Honyenuga urged them to avoid examination malpractices to ensure efficient studies.
“the university will not tolerate and shield any form of sexual harassment so desist from such menace” he cautioned.
The Registrar of the university Dr. Christopher Amehoe said the school has altered the academic calendar due to the three weeks strike actions of Technical Universities Teachers Association of Ghana (TUTAG).
He therefore urged the matriculants to take studies serious toward the incoming semester exams.
