GIJ Increases 2020-21 Academic Fees by 5% ; Students of the Ghana Institute of Journalism (GIJ) will have to brace themselves as management of the Institute has upwardly reviewed academic fees by at least 5% for the 2020/2021 academic year.
Per the new fee schedule, regular students pursuing the Institute’s Bachelor in Communication Studies programme will now have to pay GHC 2,520.00 whilst those pursuing a Diploma in Communication Studies (Regular and Weekend) will have to pay GHC 2,310.00 as academic fees.

The fee for first-year Diploma in Communication Studies (evening) students is now GHC 2,660.00 whilst their colleagues in the Weekend class will pay GHC 2,900.00
The increase in academic fees at the Ghana Institute of Journalism comes at a time when tertiary students have appealed to the government to consider reducing academic fees by at least 30% for only the 2020/2021 academic year following the economic impact the coronavirus pandemic has had on individuals.
Already, some students of the Institute have lamented the upward review and have called on the government to intervene.
Persons who have been offered admission into the school for the 2020/2021 academic have been asked to confirm their acceptance of the offer by payment of the new fees by Sunday, 13th September 2020.
Continuing students have also been asked to commence their academic registration from Monday, 14th September 2020 to Friday 16th October 2020.
