THE Rector of BlueCrest University College Ghana, a technology and fashion school, Dr Sujith Jayaprakash has stated that financial limitations should not hinder access to quality education.
He explained that education in any form provided stability in life, therefore nothing should hinder anyone from gaining it.
“We believe that access to quality education should not be limited by financial constraints. Everyone deserves access to quality education,” he said.
Consequently, his outfit has put in measures to support brilliant, needy students by reducing tuition fees for this academic year to relieve students and parents of financial burdens considering the current economic crisis.
“The reduction in fees is aimed at supporting brilliant, needy students who may be struggling to afford higher education and this move is part of the college’s ongoing efforts to make education more accessible and inclusive,” he said in an interview with the Daily Graphic.
Dr Jayaprakash noted that the college had been in operation for the past 20 years and it felt strongly the need to be there for students at a time when the economy was not doing so well.
He added that with the reduction in fees, the college hopes it would attract even more students who were passionate about these fields and were eager to take their education to the next level.
“The reduction in fees will take effect immediately and will apply to all students, regardless of their financial background or academic standing.
The college will continue to work with students and their families to ensure that they have the support they need to succeed,” he said.
Furthermore, Dr Jayaprakash noted that his outfit was proud to be at the forefront of efforts to make education more accessible in Ghana.
“The college believes that education is the foundation of a strong and prosperous society, and it is committed to doing its part to help build a brighter future for all,” he said.
