Student Orientation/Inductions

The orientation programme intends to introduce all students to the academic, social and cultural environment at Kwame Nkrumah University. Orientations are held for first year while, seminars and workshops are also organised for other category of students whenever it is necessary. There are many events that take place during these activities. This is the time when students come to know each other. Some events will help the students understand how to study and learn in a University setting. However, the main purpose of all the events is to make the students feel comfortable and understand where to run to when faced with any academic or non- academic challenge. The orientation programme is conducted for one week and during this orientation, the first year students get to have an opportunity to meet with the Vice Chancellor during the special welcome ceremony and the Schools to understand various expectations from them. Orientation programme is conducted by an Orientation Team involving trained students and members of staff.
