Most students are shocked to find out there are so many colleges and higher education learning institutions in Ghana. However, Ghana has rapidly grown their education system within the last 20 years, giving students both domestic and international an incredible advantage to learn about studies that may not be readily available elsewhere.

Cost of Living for Students

Student living costs change in each country; however, every student must keep in mind a general budget they should follow month to month. Not only will the student be able to save, but this is a lifelong skill that they will heavily benefit from throughout their college career.

When it comes to living in a college residence, students should budget for between GH¢800 and GH¢ 1300. But if the student wishes to live off campus and instead live in a hostel or a private residence, they should create a budget that fits between GH¢1500 and 4000.

Tuition Cost and Expectance

International students can expect to pay per semester anywhere from $2,700 USD to $10,000 USD. Now this does heavily depend on if the student is attending a public or private institution. No matter what, private institutions will always have a higher tuition cost.

For a postgraduate degree in Ghana, students should without a doubt plan for the higher end of tuition, such as $10,000 USD per semester. Solely because postgraduate degree courses do cost more.

Languages Spoken in Ghana

There are around 50 or more languages spoken throughout the country, the main languages that students may come across are English, Akan, Akposo, Ewe, Dagbani, Dangme, Dagaare, Ga, Krobo, Nzema, Kasem, Gonja, Anii or Basila. There are several branches that the Ghana language belongs to, and students would heavily benefit if they were to learn one of these languages:

  • Kwa languages (Akan, Bia, Guang in Tano; Ga and Adangme)
  • Gbe languages (Ewe)
  • Gur languages (Gurunsi, Dagbani, Mossi, Dagaare, and Frafra in Oti–Volta)
  • Senufo languages (Nafaanra)
  • Kulango languages
  • Mande languages (Wangara, Ligbi)
