At least 7,500 students have been admitted to study at the undergraduate level in the University of Buea, the Registrar of the institution, Ernest Molua has revealed.
The students were duly selected after the admissions board, chaired by the Vice Chancellor of the institution met on Friday, October 16.
Immediately after the meeting, the institution started notifying successful applicants electronically, via emails, and on mobile phones. In a short notice released by the registrar, the physical list shall be publiched on the institution’s website this week as well as on campus.
