With a growing population of about 28 million, Ghana's progressive economy, wealth of resources, and constitutional political system, makes it undeniably one of Africa's shining lights. Gaining the world's confidence with a peaceful political transition and a grounded and firm commitment to democracy has helped in expediting Ghana's growth in foreign direct investment (FDI) in recent years.
The International Monetary Fund (IMF) projects that Ghana’s economy will grow 7.5 per cent in 2017 as the Oil Field begins full production. Despite the challenging times during last year where most countries did not show good growth levels due to the global economic downturn, Ghana had an economic growth rate provisional of 7.4%.
With the recent influx of investors this proves that Ghana has a wonderful conducive social, political and economic environment for growth and investment. Government is working to reduce gender gaps in school enrolment and completion at the secondary and tertiary levels and to ensure that all school-going children attained a minimum of high school education through the free SHS policy. The country is also focusing on a production-oriented approach to education, with emphasis on the knowledge and skills needed for economic development.
With the need for higher learning and further enhancement in the quality of education, one important aspect that is worth noting is the continuous growing demand and interest from Ghanaians to study abroad. This demand not only stems from the need to gain new perspective, but also to give themselves a competitive edge in the job market.
Below is a list of our upcoming events:
The University of Portsmouth have attended UKEAS Fairs in West Africa for many years because they are always well-organised, and we are able to meet with engaged students who are well-prepared.
I am really glad that we participated in the UKEAS exhibitions in Ghana and Nigeria. They were well organised, with well-trained staff on hand throughout the day to answer any questions and to talk to enquirers. We met hundreds of high quality potential students and each exhibition generated a good number of leads, which we hope now to convert to applications. We will definitely be attending future fairs with UKEAS
Thanks your apply, we'll contact you soon
