The UMB, a commercial bank in Ghana, has announced its full support for the Government’s education agenda by providing students with the flexibility to pay admission and all other fees in any of its 35 branches.
Mr Samuel Sakyi Hyde, the General Manager for Consumer Banking for the Bank, noted that “At UMB, we are constantly looking for how to create convenience for our customers.
That is why we have partnered with a number of educational institutions to ensure that their students can pay for all their fees anywhere they are in Ghana at any of our branches.”
The full list of the schools that are currently served by the UMB Smartfees product includes the University of Ghana, Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Pentecost University, Takoradi Technical University, Koforidua Technical University, Kumasi Technical University, Christ Apostolic University, Institute of Distance Learning, Labone Senior High School, The HillTop International British School, etc.
“This means that customers do not have to travel all the way to the school to pay their fees but can pay their fees at any of our branches.
“Very soon, we are working very hard and customers can indeed pay for these fees through our online platforms that will soon be made available to these schools,” he said.
Admissions have begun for public schools and are expected to continue to the end of July and it is anticipated that school will start for students by late August.
