Gambia: UTG organizes the 21st registration ceremony

The University of The Gambia held its 21st matriculation ceremony at its Peace Building, Kanifing Campus on Wednesday, June 8, 2022.

The Vice-Chancellor of the University has conferred membership in the University on students admitted at the undergraduate level in different academic programs offered at the University of The Gambia.

The University of The Gambia consists of 10 schools, including a graduate school, and currently offers over 209 degree programs, 17 master’s programs and 5 doctoral programs.

Professor Herbert Robinson, Vice-Chancellor of the University of The Gambia, told Matriculates that the ceremony represents a milestone in their lives as young men and women and holds great significance for their families, adding that it marks the beginning of a life changing life.

Mr. Robinson noted that this year’s admission was very competitive as they received 2,139 applications, but due to their limited space and infrastructure, they could only admit 1,241 applicants.

He added that of this number, 680 are men representing 55% while 553 are women representing 45%, noting that they are committed to closing the gender parity gap.

He urged students to take the vote of confidence seriously and meet expectations and deliver not only in terms of academic experience and culture, but also for general socializing and campus life.

Fatou Ndour, a first-year journalism student, expressed her joy at being part of the 21st Matriculates, adding that to hold a high position in The Gambia now, one needs a degree to qualify for this position.

This, she added, motivated her to apply for the program, saying she hopes to have a great experience at the University of The Gambia to be able to practice professionally.
