Pentecost Uni Partners UK Unis To Offer Top-Up For HND Holders

The Pentecost University College has entered into a partnership with two top universities in the United Kingdom to offer top-up programmes for HND holders.

The partnership with the London South Bank University and Association Business Executives (ABE)-UK will enable PUC run degree programmes for HND holders.

Ghanaian students who have obtained ABE Level 6 can also enrol at PUC to obtain a British degree in Ghana.

Speaking to in an interview at the signing of a memorandum of understanding with the two UK institutions, rector for Pentecost University College Apostle Dr Daniel Okyere Walker disclosed the collaboration will afford Ghanaian students trained by polytechnics in the country the opportunity to acquire degrees.

“We have other collaborations with other universities in the USA, in the UK and Germany. But this one is quite special, because it offers opportunity for HND holders to do a top up and within a year or so be able to upgrade themselves to have a university degree.

“Ghana, we have trained a lot of students through the polytechnics and I think that this offers an opportunity for such students to also upgrade their skills and get the degrees that they’ve been yearning for. That’s why it’s so special and I’m excited about it,” Dr Walker said.

Speaking at the signing ceremony, the Dean of School of Business, London South Bank University, Professor Mike Molan, charged institutions to equip students with skills needed for the job market.

“We are in a knowledge-based society therefore, practical/vocational education to equip students for employable skills should be the main preoccupation of Universities when training students for the job market”.

The MoU signing will provide the framework for the two Universities to cooperate on academic programmes, carve out joint research activities as well as facilitate training and development of the students.
