The University of Ghana (UoG) was founded as the University College of the Gold Coast by Ordinance on August 11, 1948 for the purpose of providing and promoting university education, learning and research. It is currently the largest university in Ghana. As the leading university in Ghana, UoG aims to produce the next generation of leaders to drive national development. Through our research institutes and other centres of learning and research, faculty members are involved in studies that support policy making for national development, often in collaboration with other international institutions. There are currently a number of Ghanaian and international institutions affiliated with UoG. As a leader in tertiary education, the university has established several agreements with universities in Africa, Europe and North America for student, faculty and staff exchange as well as collaborative research.
