Management of the premier Science and Technology University in West Africa, Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Kumasi in late January of this year released application forms for prospective students would want to pursue a course in the university for the 2020/2021 academic year.

Being noted as the best school in West Africa and 14th in Africa, there is a lot of competition to secure a slot.

Out of the over 56,000 people that applied last year (2019), only 22,000 people were admitted for the 2019/2020 academic year. This fairly gives you an idea of how competitive making it to the university is.

The good news is that the university issued a statement that it is going to admit extra 23,000 students during the 2020/2021 academic year admissions.

Due to the competitive nature of the programmes, it is good that as an applicant, you have a view of the KNUST cut-off point for 2020/2021 used for its immediate admission process to serve as a guide when selecting your programmes.

We have compiled a list of all the programmes the University offer and most importantly, the KNUST cut-off point for 2020/2021 to serve as your guide.
