Mountcrest University College, (MCU) has launched its 10th anniversary celebrations with a 25 percent cut in first year fees for prospective students who will apply this month, (March, 2019), for the school’s flagship Law programme.
The offer also forms part of a special programme dubbed, the “Learning for Life” initiative which is in line with the national drive to build the capacity of Ghanaians for the sustainable development of the country.
In a statement issued in Accra and signed by the Acting Registrar of MCU, Reverend Delali K. Akati, the management of the school, which is the first private tertiary institution in Ghana to offer degree programmes in Law, explained that the initiative revolves around a five-year campaign, which aims at building the much needed human resource capacity for the nation.
“The Learning for Life” initiative begins this month with a 25 percent discount on fees in the first year for successful applicants, who will be admitted to our flagship LLB programme in March 2019,” the statement said.
“This is in line with MCU’s vision to become a world class teaching and research institution, educating for life and addressing the challenges facing contemporary society,” the statement noted.
According to the statement, the discounted fees offer and the” Learning for Life” initiative as a whole form part of MCU’s mission to train and prepare a new generation of graduates in body, mind and spirit, for the transformation of society.
The MCU Law course is available as either a regular day, evening or weekend programme and has a flexible tuition fee payment plan.
This, the management said, was designed to ease the burden on students and their sponsors by helping them to decide which times were best for them, while enjoying the cuts in the fees.
“We realise that paying for education is not always easy, so we have created flexible payment plans for our students to encourage more people to get quality tertiary education, which we believe is key to the accelerated development of Ghana and the world as a whole,” the statement pointed out.
The Mountcrest University College also runs programmes in Public Health, Sociology and Religious Studies. It opens admissions twice a year, February/March and July/October.
Over the years, MCU has been noted for its renowned professors, who have worked around the world and are globally renowned for their research and quality of teaching.
The management of the school stressed that it was working tirelessly to complete works on MCU’s main campus at Larteh, Akwapim, to expand its operations in order to offer top class learning opportunities to more students.
The school also aims at all times to instill in its students, an enterprising spirit, which recently led the outgoing Students Representative Council (SRC) to build a Moot Court facility at the school’s Kanda Campus for the law students.
The outgoing SRC President, Mr Anyass Ibrahim Mohammed said the moot court was built to offer the students the opportunity to put into practice what was being taught in the school even before they graduate.
