Wesley College of Education courses and admission requirements

Wesley College of Education is a dream institution for many young people aspiring to pursue an education in Ghana. The institute was started back in 1922 by Gold Coast Methodist church to train church workers, teachers, and ministers. Due to the increasing demand for educating Akan speaking circles of Ghana, there was a need to train more teachers and ministers. Wesley College was therefore relocated to Kumasi, which opened officially in March 1924. Wesley College popularly known as WESCO is currently among the top public institutions that nurture teachers who teach in public schools of Ghana. Admission requirements, courses, and fees are very fair for all aspiring students. This gives equal opportunities to all native students of Ghana.
