Government/Public Universities in Ghana

Universities in Ghana

There are many but few public universities in Ghana at the moment. I say this because although many people think the public universities in the country are enough, the number of people ready to enter into these universities far exceeds the capacity of our public universities. It is a shame as a country that had independence some 55yrs ago doesn’t have public universities across the whole country. Every regional capital should have at least have one university by now but that is not the case we are witnessing as a result of poor management on the country’s affairs by our various political parties. presents to you today the list of public universities in Ghana and their respective programs undertaken and contact details. We hope this information will help you in your decision to choose a better option to further your tertiary education.

Here is the list of Government/public universities in Ghana approved by the National Accreditation Board, Ghana. We excluded the newly established university, University For Health and Allied Sciences from our list because it wasn’t found on the official website of the National Accreditation Board (Universities in Ghana)

University entrants should also know that the University For Health and Allied Science (UHAS), Ho has been opened for admissions. You can get their forms at most of the big national post offices in the country. We refused to add them to the list because for no apparent reason, it was not listed on the National Accreditation Board official website.
