About a thousand four hundred students who were dismissed from the Methodist University for having deficient admission qualifications may just be re-instated.
This follows a ruling by the Human rights court in Accra that they should be allowed to pursue their various courses until a final determination of a substantive class action suit seventy-nine of them filed in court.
The students are praying the court to declare their withdrawal illegal and a violation on their rights to education.
There was wild jubilation amongst the students once news got to them that the court had granted their application.
In the courtroom, the judge Justice Essel Kofi Mensah after the lawyers had argued ruled that the students who got to know of their dismissal during vacation be allowed back when school reopens early next month.
They had been dismissed after they were found to have entered with grades below the admission requirements set by NAB.
The students however insist they fulfilled the requirements as set out by the university and so cannot be made to suffer.
Counsel for the students Gary Nimako Marfo announced in court today the number of students involved in the class action suit had gone up to 97 from the original 79.
Some students who spoke to Joy News said they were happy they would be joining their colleagues when school reopens on October 5. The case had been adjourned to November 29.
