Vision & Mision

Accra City Campus was established in 2003 and inaugurated in February 2004 as a NON RESIDENTIAL EDUCATIONAL FACILITY out of the existing External Degree Division (of the Accra Workers College) which later became the External Degree Centre (EDC). Based on the document governing the inauguration of the City Campus, it was supposed to be managed by a team comprising of a Principal, a Vice Principal, a Senior Assistant Librarian, a Senior Assistant Registrar, an Accountant and an Assistant Librarian, who are all senior members of the University.

The principal focus of the Accra City Campus has been to help the adult working population who wish to pursue degree or diploma courses while working. To achieve this goal, the Accra City Campus pursues the following aims:

  • Give access to university education to willing Ghanaian workers.
  • Provide tertiary education for matured or adult students who otherwise cannot go through the normal University system to obtain a degree.
  • Contribute to the personal development of those who for a variety of reasons cannot get education at conventional Universities.
  • Address a felt, but hardly considered, need in the society, which is the provision of education at the convenience of the recipient.

However, following the need to provide more avenues for the large number of qualified Senior High School graduates seeking admission into universities in Ghana, the council of the University of Ghana decided in 2006, to allow these graduates to be admitted to the Accra City Campus to pursue various degree programs in Arts, Social Sciences and Administration.
