The Registrar of UDS, Dr. A.B.T Zakariah in a letter dated the 22 of May, 2018 ordered the withdrawal of eighteen final year students of the University For Development Studies- Tamale Campus for not possessing the qualifications by virtue of which they were offered admission”. This decision was made after the institution probed into results from the West African Examination Council.
Thirteen Nursing students, three Community Nutrition students, a Midwifery student and a Health Science student have been withdrawn from the institution per the list released by the office of the Registrar.
The news came as a shock to students as these particular students are almost done with their four years stay on campus, working on their projects and preparing to graduate.
The concerns many students are raising are with regards to why the University conducts the verification prior to graduation and not before admissions are given out.
