Just like ranking of universities in other countries are important, a ranking of Ghanaian universities is also vital especially to international students who want to study in Ghana but are confused about which or university to apply for.

Basically, the core aim of doing this is mainly to improve the presence of the academic and research institutions on the Web and to promote the open access publication of scientific results.

More so, as an international student, knowing a university ranking in Ghana would boost your confidence in going to the university even before applying if it’s high.

For instance, most people that want to study in Ghana are desiring to study at the University of Ghana, even when they have not been there before. This is because the university of Ghana is ranked as the best university in Ghana and also no. 1 in the top 10 universities in Ghana.

Who won’t want to study at the no. 1 best ranked University?

Although, Ghana has more than 65 Universities currently that offer top-notch education services to both national and international students, here is the ranking of Ghanaian universities from the 1st to the 40th.

Note, this ranking is based on publications, research, and web presence. The aim is to facilitate the web presence, research, and publishing of Ghanaian universities that are lagging behind.



The University of Ghana, the premier university and the largest university in Ghana was founded as the University College of the Gold Coast by Ordinance on August 11, 1948 for the purpose of providing and promoting university education, learning and research.

As a University poised to distinguish itself in the area of research to make an impact at the national and international level, the University has launched a new Strategic Plan.

This new strategic plan (2014-2024) is intended to consolidate the gains made from the review of the University’s mission and practices and situate these within the context of a very dynamic environment of higher education in Ghana and beyond.
