I belong to the school of thought that believes education is the ground breaking tool to our social, economic and political challenges. Ghanaian institutions of higher learning have really rolled up their sleeves to ensure they produce fully-fledged citizens capable of participating positively for the growth of the nation. Nonetheless, the quality and delivery of education differs from one institution to the next. Here is the Ghanaian university web ranking.

Notably, higher education institutions are ranked based on quality of education, ability to impact skills, performance, reputation, facilities and human personnel engaged. There are certain provisions that must be met by a university in order to qualify the 2018 Ghana university web ranking.
First an institution must be accredited, chartered and licensed by the Ghanaian Higher Education related supervisory body. Secondly, it should be offering courses both in the undergraduate school – bachelors’ degree and in graduate schools – masters and doctorate degrees. Finally, a Ghanaian university should be in use of regular education mode of study, not distance learning alone. With all these element put into consideration, then University Ghana ranking world standards are met. Here are some of the top ranked universities in Ghana.
