UDS Admission Entry Requirements
Below are the general admission entry requirements for UDS (University of Development Studies)
UDS Degree Programmes Entry Requirements
Applicants who apply for any UDS degree programme should meet the following general entry requirements before they can be offered admission into the institution.
WASSCE holders seeking admission into Degree programmes must have at least C6 in all their three Core and three Elective Subjects.
WASSCE holders who have Grade D7 or E8 or F9 in any one of their three Core or three Elective subjects are advised not to apply for a degree programme.
Candidates should therefore possess, at least, credit scores/grades in the following:
• Three Core Subjects (English Language, Mathematics (Core) and Integrated Science / Social Studies).
• Any three Elective subjects in the relevant programmes.
• Aggregate Score of the best six (6) subjects (three core and three electives) must not exceed 36. However, admissions will be on a competitive basis, and various programmes offered in UDS have their cut-off points much lower than the aggregate 36 for WASSCE.
• Candidates should note that Social Studies is not an elective subject.
• For candidates who read Arts and Business subjects at WASSCE, a grade in Social Studies may be used in place of the grade in Integrated Science in the calculation of their aggregates if the Social Studies grade is better than the grade in Integrated Science. This is however on condition that the candidate has at least a pass in Integrated Science.
• For Science students, however, Social Studies (Core) does not replace Integrated Science (Core) in the calculation of candidates’ aggregates.
UDS Diploma Programmes Entry Requirements
Applicants who apply for any UDS diploma programme should meet the following general entry requirements before they can be offered admission into the institution.
Candidates who do not meet the requirements for UDS Degree programmes are advised to apply for any one of the Diploma programmes (Diploma in Development Education, Basic Education, Early Childhood, Care and Education, all of which are offered at the Tamale Campus; Diploma in Social Change Communication, Agriculture Technology, Family and Consumer Science, Biotechnology and Molecular Biology, Natural Resource Management are offered on Nyankpala Campus)
• To be admitted into a Diploma programme, three credit passes in the area of specialization (elective subjects) and at least two passes ( D7 or better) in English Language and Mathematics in WASSCE is required. Any candidate without a pass in English Language and Mathematics (core) need not apply for the Diploma. It is not likely that all candidates with the minimum requirements for Diploma programmes will be admitted. Preference will be given to candidates who have good grades/credit passes.
Candidates, who have met the requirements for Degree programmes (Credits in three electives and three core subjects), but have aggregates that are not good enough may be admitted into Diploma programmes
