UCC Undergraduate Studies
Our undergraduate programs work together to advance the academic mission of the University of Cape Coast (UCC). We support the scholarly engagement and pursuit of excellence by all UCC students from orientation, throughout their undergraduate education through to graduation. As educational goals and career interests are being developed by students, we provide guidance and academic support, including counseling, tutoring, and mentoring. We provide an accessible learning environment for our students.
In collaboration with the University’s Counseling Centre, every student is assigned to an academic and career counselor who helps the student to develop goals and interests. We encourage and facilitate participation in the experiential learning opportunities that are an integral component of a well-rounded undergraduate education, such as undergraduate research, internships, and service learning, and promoting experiential learning at UCC. We have an ultra-modern library where students can study, conduct research, and access academic support services.
We offer various programmes that equip our students with the 21st century skills needed for the job market.
Orientation is mandatory for all freshmen. It is a week-long series of events at held the beginning of the first semester for freshmen to meet new people and find new opportunities available at the University. Students are introduced to the various clubs and associations and are encouraged to join as many as they wish. In a sense, the orientation process presents freshmen with a snapshot of life on UCC campus.
This is a formal ceremony to admit students to the rights and privileges of the University. It is a simple but a significant ceremony at which newly admitted students of the University swear an oath to abide by the rules and regulations of the University and to apply themselves to the programmes of study they have been admitted into.
Students Representative Council
The UCC’s Students’ Representative Council is the official representative of the student body and therefore serves as a mother council for all other student groups on campus. The SRC, whose officers serve on most of the university’s boards and committees, engages in constructive dialogue with the university authorities to address concerns of students in an atmosphere of civility and mutual respect
