The management of the University of Ghana Legon released the new academic fees for the 2020/2021 academic year.

The academic timetable for the incoming year was also released ahead of the fees.

The information released saw an increase in the school fees and also saw the introduction of a double track shift due to the current COVID-19 pandemic.

The amount to be paid for the period to be spent in school has caused some form of reactions from the student body.

Some students think that based on the period to be spent in school the fees need to be reduced instead of increased.

Others think the Government needs to intervene in one way or the other.

Here are some reactions from some students.

  1. It’s absolutely nonsense,any way did they sit down to think this thoroughly,no I don’t think so because if they had they wouldn’t brought such an inconsiderate calendar and time table .what will actually happen if we should all go on the same date huh..whose parents should pay such fees meant for just 6 weeks instead of 13 weeks and again whose child should come and learn under pressure for that 6 six weeks,would they have done that for their children ?this people are just insane ..they better do something about this ..I rest my case
