Higher education solutions company Worldview has launched a Study in Ghana initiative with the aim of attracting students from Africa, Europe, Asia, and America to study in the west African country.
The aim is to help international students with their application process and answer all questions they might have about Ghana
A coalition of institutions in Ghana powered by recruitment platform findadmission.com, the launch of Study in Ghana was welcomed by the country’s minister of Education, Matthew Opoku Prempeh, who said it fits into the government’s initiatives to promote Ghana around the world and encourage investment into the country.
“It is time to let the world know that Africa being recorded as the birth site of civilisation is not a myth”
The minister said the country is now open to attract international students and to improving the quality of education in the continent.
The aim of the initiative is to help international students with their application process and answer all questions they might have about living and studying in Ghana.
Through the service, students can enrol in full degree programs, participate in summer schools and exchange programs provided by Ghanaian universities.
Founder of findadmission.com and the CEO of Worldview, Folabi Obembe, said he has always been critical of the phrase ‘brain drain in Africa’ because he believes that mobility enriches teaching and learning.
He said his only concern was the fact that the mobility of students in Africa is always “one way” with no stream of students coming to Africa to study.
“This is why we decided to embark on a journey to promote countries in Africa as a study destination and to encourage a more organised migration of students in the continent,” Obembe said.
“It is time to let the world know that Africa being recorded as the birth site of civilisation is not a myth. We started this movement in Ghana because we believe that Ghana has all it requires to take the lead in marketing its education sector within Africa and around the world,” he added.
In cooperation with member institutions in Ghana, Worldview will use its global student recruitment platform and experience in international education marketing to make the application procedures easier and more efficient for both students and the universities.
“Study in Ghana is here to support student mobility within Africa, present African institutions to the rest of the world, make quality education more accessible, and to increase general knowledge about Ghana worldwide,” added Obembe.
“Study in Ghana is ideal for students interested in summer school, study abroad programs or pursuing a full undergraduate or master’s degree in Ghana. We are making the necessary information readily available, connecting students and institutions, and we are constantly working on making the application procedures as simple and smooth as possible.”
