Welcome by Head of Department

You are welcome to the Department of Distance Education. You can send us a mail dde@ug.edu.gh or walk-in during working hours of 8:30 am to 5:00, Monday-Friday for enquiries at the department’s main office at the School of Continuing and Distance Education, Legon Campus , or at any of our Regional Learning Centres. 

It is the vision of the School of Continuing and Distance Education to pursue academic programmes and activities towards the realization of the potential growth that exists for investing in the expansion of adult, continuing and distance education programmes which would extend the reach of the University to student populations in formats which the traditional face-to-face classroom learning cannot provide.

It is in the light of this vision that the Department of Distance Education has the mission of delivering the academic programmes of the University in the distance mode to create access for qualified applicants who will otherwise not get admitted into on-campus programmes as a result of limited space. 

The Department is working on putting in administrative systems that will improve the delivery of the distance education programme. Plans are underway to mount more market-driven courses and provide tools that will enhance the academic work of students at a distance. 


Ag. Head of Department Dr. Samuel Amponsah
