History of the Academic Affairs Registry
The Academic Affairs Registry, established in 2011, is the central focus for academic administration at the Ghana Institute of Journalism and is responsible for delivering a proactive, professional and quality service in support of the Institute’s mission, vision and core values. There are three central units within the Registry under the direction of a Deputy Registrar, and the critical functions of the Units include the following:
- Teaching/Examination & Institutional Affiliation Unit
The Unit is responsible for the teaching and examination, scheduling of time-tabling, providing logistics for examinations, results audit, coordinating and managing institutional affiliation matters. The Unit also liaises with Departments and Faculties to plan and allocate lecture rooms and examination centres as well as handle all logistical issues relating to all examinations like mature applicants selection, mid-semester, re-sit and end-of-Semester Examinations.
- Admissions Unit
The Unit coordinates and processes prospective applicants applications for admission into the academic programmes run by the Institute, engages in student recruitment and outreach activities to prospective students. It also coordinates registration, orientation, matriculating students and issuing of identification cards for both students and staff.
- Students Records Management Information System Unit
The Unit acts as the definitive record keeper of student information and academic records.
