It’s a privilege and delight to welcome you to the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology Institute of Distance Learning (IDL-KNUST) Website.

It all started in 2005, when KNUST decided to provide Distance Learning as an alternative for workers who desire higher education but do not have the time to enrol for conventional regular education. Ten (10) years on, IDL-KNUST has become one of the finest academic institutions providing quality distance education in Ghana,  West Africa sub-regionand the Gulf Area.
