On behalf of the Governing Board, Management and staff of the Institute of Distance Learning (IDL), Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) – Kumasi, I have the pleasure to welcome you to our website.
IDL has since the year 2005 been offering a unique opportunity to expand science and technology education access, brewed in the pot of the prestigious KNUST in the distance learning mode. With a vision to be a leading Institute in providing access to continuing and tertiary education and training through distance learning in Africa, IDL-KNUST provides increasing access to quality, demand-driven, continuing and tertiary education programmes through the use of a wide range of information, communication and management technologies in a flexible manner.
The Institute has and continues to evolve in terms of the number of undergraduate and postgraduate programmes offer on its platform, as well as the number of centres across the country. With our Centres scattered across the country, we are able to provide timeous and quality learning support to students living in different parts of the country, thus reducing travel expenses and inconvenience. Our blended learning approach, highly skilled faculty and staff, as well as state-of-the-art delivery infrastructure, has made IDL – KNUST, the toast of many patrons. Our limited and periodic face-to-face sessions also allow for students to bond and socialise for social capital advantages. With our unique form of distance learning where the core and seasoned faculty of KNUST facilitate our programmes across the country, one can be sure of the quality of our output.
With our plethora of programmes that range from Agriculture, Business and Management, Computer Science, Education, Engineering, Social Sciences, etc. offered across the traditional Colleges of KNUST, what is your area of interest? IDL-KNUST offers a two-year Diploma, two-year undergraduate top-up and many postgraduate programmes as well as an access programme for our health professionals. With our relatively moderate school fees and flexible payment terms, your choice must surely be IDL-KNUST.
In welcoming you onboard, please enjoy our website with adequate information on student resources, admissions, programmes and their entry requirements, contacts, centres, etc.
