About the University of Ghana (UG)

The University of Ghana, formerly known as the University College of the Gold Coast, was established in 1948 in what was then the British colony of the Gold Coast. The University of Ghana is the oldest and largest of the thirteen Ghanaian national public universities. The University of Ghana, formerly known as the University College of the Gold Coast, was established in 1948 in what was then the British colony of the Gold Coast. The University of Ghana is the oldest and largest of the thirteen Ghanaian national public universities. Following Ghana's independence in 1957, the institution was rechristened the University College of Ghana. After attaining full university status in 1961, the institution once again changed its name, this time to the University of Ghana. The University of Ghana may be found on the western side of the Accra Legon hills and to the northeast of the city's central business district. It has a total of more than 40,000 active student registrations.

When the University of Ghana was first being planned, its primary focus was on fields such as the liberal arts, social sciences, law, fundamental science, agriculture, and medicine. On the other hand, in order to comply with the requirements of a programme designed to modernise education on a national scale, the curriculum of the university in question was altered to include a greater number of courses focused on technology and vocational training, in addition to postgraduate education.

The primary campus of the University of Ghana is located in Legon, which is located approximately 12 kilometres northeast of the city centre of Accra. The University of Ghana's medical school is located in the nearby town of Korle-Bu, and the University of Ghana also maintains a teaching hospital and a secondary/external campus in Accra. It is also one of the few institutions on the African continent that has a graduate school of nuclear and Allied Sciences at the Ghana Atomic Energy Commission. As a result, the university is one of the few on the continent that offers programmes in nuclear physics and nuclear engineering.

History: University of Ghana (UG)

The establishment of this illustrious organisation began in 1948 with the Rt. Hon. Walter Elliot serving as head of the West African Commission of the Asquith Commission on Higher Education in the Colonies. This was the year that the institution came into being. Following the commission's recommendation to establish university colleges in association with the University of London, an ordinance was passed on August 11, 1948 that established the University College of the Gold Coast with the intention of providing for and promoting university education, learning, and research. The original suggestion, which said that only one university institution was practicable for the whole of British West Africa and would be situated in Nigeria by the people of Gold Coast, was not accepted, which made this possibility conceivable. This was made possible as a result of this.

In the book commissioned by the University of Ghana, Professor Francis Agbodeka (1998) found that "Two members of the Legislative Council - Dr J. B. Danquah and Prof. Christian Baeta on their own volition worked on the question of securing funds for the project. More significant, F. M. Bourret (1949), in almost a contemporaneous account, reported that the strong and united opinion expressed by Dr. Nanka-Bruce in a Radio Station Zoy address to the People of the Gold Coast in October 1947, “was largely instrumental in influencing the Secretary of State for the colonies” to finally give his consent in 1947, “for the establishment of a Gold Coast university college.” Historically, in those days, long before the advent of television, entire communities and groups would listen to news, sports, and entertainment, broadcast from Radio Station Zoy, the BBC, and other stations on the short-wave radio band, to a single radio set.

Significantly, the founding of the University of Ghana, which was based on the Elliot Commission's Majority Report (of which Sir Arku Korsah of the Gold Coast was a member), was the culmination of an enormous amount of work put in by a number of organisations, committees, institutions, and prominent individuals from both within Ghana and outside of the country. Members of organisations and civil society groups that campaigned for the establishment of the University of College of the Gold Coast/Ghana included also Dr. Nanka-Bruce, Rev. Prof. C. G. Baeta, and Sir E. Asafu-Adjaye, as well as Dr. J. B. Danquah. These individuals are considered to be some of the most prominent Ghanaians. After the Elliot Commission suggested establishing a university at Kumasi, in the Ashanti Region, the Asantehene, Otomfuo Nana Agyemang Prempeh, II, gave his assent to the plan. Kumasi is located in the Ashanti Region. In conclusion, the citizens of the Gold Coast, acting as a group, successfully advocated for the establishment of the University Coll├Ęge of the Gold Coast in association with the University of London in 1948. This came in the wake of the Elliot Commission report, which included the participation of a citizen of the Gold Coast named Sir Arku Korsah.

The former University College of Ghana was succeeded by the University of Ghana in 1961 when the government of Ghana, led by Kwame Nkrumah, approved the University of Ghana Act, 1961 (Act 79). The institution was granted the status of a sovereign university and the authority to confer its own degrees as a direct result of that legislation.
