University Of Ghana Makes It To Times Higher Education (THE) World University Rankings


The University of Ghana is in the band of 601-800 of institutions worldwide, according to a release by the Times Higher Education (THE) World Rankings.

With no University in Ghana making it to the THE World Rankings, this obviously places the University of Ghana ahead of its peers in Ghana, in addition to being a force to be reckoned with on the continent and on the global front.  The Times Higher Education World University Rankings are generated from five pillars, each of which represents a key area of higher education excellence - teaching (the learning environment), research (volume, income and reputation), citations (research influence), industry income (knowledge transfer), and international outlook (staff, students and research).

For a University keen on enhancing internationalization, it is welcome news that the University of Ghana’s strongest pillar was International Outlook where the University of Ghana ranked in the 5th decile. 

In June this year, the Thompson Reuters rankings placed the University of Ghana at the tenth position among tertiary institution on the African continent.  

The continued upward mobility of the University of Ghana in world rankings is an attestation of the University’s quest to become a world-class research intensive university over the next decade.
