Dean's Welcome Message
Professor Naa Ayikailey Adamafio, Dean
The International Programmes Office welcomes you to the University of Ghana, Ghana's premier university and one of Africa’s most prestigious universities. Our university is well-recognized as a centre of excellence all over the world. The university was established more than 60 years ago and has trained more than 40,000 graduates who are at the helm of affairs in Ghana and many parts of the world. Currently the student population is about 30,000 with over 1,000 international students every year.
Our university offers a lot in the way of learning opportunities both inside and outside the classroom. Students, faculty, University Administration and academic support staff are all very supportive, and the wider Ghanaian society is warm and hospitable. Over the years, our international students have come to love our institution and this unique country and have made it their second home.
We encourage you to take advantage of every opportunity and we would be at hand to help you with this transition. It is through you that we continuously achieve our objective of becoming a world class university with a global presence. Our office is therefore dedicated to assisting you to reap the maximum benefit from your stay in Ghana.
We are pleased to have you and we wish you success in your time with us.
