About Our Students

International Student 2Our International students are almost all destined for senior leadership positions in the future. They are bright, articulate students who will go home and be instrumental in the growth and development of their countries.

As a result, we have a serious responsibility to teach them superior values and technological skills. We recognise that we are training future leaders here, and for that reason, our class rooms are rigorous and disciplined places. Students from all over the World come together here and the Professors really use the diversity to open up class discussions.An education at KNUST is about much more that completing a major and getting a degree. It is about living and learning in a culturally and ethnically rich environment - a small neighbourhood in the global village. Our students and our faculty come from around the world to be a part of the KNUST experience - an experience where learning from one another is as important a part of their education as the curriculum. The percentage of foreign students in the university could get as high as 10% and fees are charged depending on the course being offered. There is an International students association which sees to the interest of Foreign students in the University such as accommodation and taking first years round campus.
