Spend an unforgettable spring semester at the University of Ghana, one of West Africa’s most prestigious universities. With approximately 30,000 students at its campus in Legon, a suburb of Accra, Ghana’s capital city, the University of Ghana offers students a broad range of exciting educational and cultural opportunities. Politically stable, safe, and with English as its official language, Ghana provides an excellent vantage point for experiencing sub-Saharan Africa and for a rich and deep study-abroad experience. The University of Ghana campus itself is large, with many amenities. Public transportation is available, and traditional markets, a large US-style mall, clubs, and medical facilities are in the vicinity. Excursions to historically significant sites, nature preserves, and other attractions are possible. American students often find Ghanaians to be warm and open, while at the same time finding it necessary to develop an understanding and appreciation of cultural traditions that may be new to the visiting students. Life in Ghana presents unusual rewards and challenges for visiting US students, and we particularly recommend this program for students who are flexible and resourceful.
