For persons looking to enter into tertiary school, there is the genuine fear when it comes to making a decision, as there has been a recent rise of unaccredited institutions operating in the country.
That, though, should no longer be the case, with the National Accreditations Board (NAB) putting in place measures to clamp down illegally Instituted schools.
In recent times, many institutions have been made to halt operations in the country due to their inability to meet standards set by NAB.
Just over a week ago the board released a list of 47 schools who were operating without authorization, and subsequently could not award professional certificates to persons who graduate from their institution.
The likes of the Ghana School of Survey and Mapping, School of Social Works and the Institute of Export and Shipping Management were all listed as schools illegally operating in the country and without accreditation from NAB.
However, in a bid to make the public more aware of schools that are well accredited, NAB has compiled a list to help differentiate between accredited and unaccredited institutions in the country.
Below is a list of the accredited schools you should attend:
1. GHANA INSTITUTE OF MANAGEMENT AND PUBLIC ADMINISTRATION (GIMPA)
2. KWAME NKRUMAH UNIVERSITY OF SCIENCE AND TECHNOLOGY
3. UNIVERSITY OF EDUCATION
4. UNIVERSITY FOR DEVELOPMENT STUDIES
5. UNIVERSITY OF CAPE COAST
6. UNIVERSITY OF ENERGY AND NATURAL RESOURCES
7. UNIVERSITY OF GHANA
8. UNIVERSITY OF HEALTH AND ALLIED SCIENCE
9. UNIVERSITY OF MINES AND TECHNOLOGY
10. UNIVERSITY OF PROFESSIONAL STUDIES (UPSA)
