UCC study and work policy scheme for student.
The management of University of Cape Coast is considering a policy that will allow student to work whilst studying. This policy will allow the university to employ needy,promising student of the institution to work on part-time basis to enable them earn some money to aid ease their financial burden.
With the study and work policy programme , student will be given the opportunity to work at the library, hall of residence and the Students Financial Support Office(SFSO).
In commencement of this initiative the university last Tuesday, 18th August 2020 inaugurated the SFSO and a management committee to commence this policy.
A committee made up of 11 members was set to manage the office and funding will be from the university.
The Pro-Vice chancellor and the chairperson SFSO committee, Prof. Dora
Edu-Buandoh, in an address, said the rational behind setting up this support office was to help release the financial burden of needy, promising students and give them hope and peace of mind for them to learn and pass well. She said the decision was taken last year after management realized that there was a critical need for the university to set aside some money to aid its brilliant , promising students who were financially constrained.
Prof. Dora Edu-Buandoh said the office has also begun to collaboration with the Scholarship Secretariat to reach eligible student easily. She further indicated, they would work to identify areas where students could be employed on a part-time basis to help provide some income for them.
She urged all colleges to support the office to achieve its mandate.
