In Africa, the University of Ghana was ranked 20th but was ranked within the 800 – 1,000 band on a global scale.

The likes of Kwame Nkrumah University, University of Cape Coast, University for Development Studies, and the University of Education, Winneba, which are four of the country’s biggest tertiary institutions, were not captured in the 2020 Ranking.
