This is an exciting time for the INTERNATIONAL PROGRAMMES OFFICE as we celebrate our 20th Anniversary. Our focus on "making UG internationally credible, internationally situated and a world class research-intensive university over the next decade" had been highlighted in our international week activities, our partnerships and pariticipations in exchnages, and now culminating in 20th Anniversary celebration this October. Our continuous vision, contribution and devotion towards leading and transforming Ghana Higher Education as well as creating an enabling environment that makes University of Ghana increasingly relevant to national and global development impels us to launch this anniversary celebration.

In August 1995, the Vice Chancellor appointed a Committee under the Chairmanship of Professor J.M. Assimeng, Department of Sociology, to examine the nature and type of relations with other academic institutions, suggest ways in which such relations may be extended, to mutual advantage of the parties involved, probe bottlenecks that may hamper the full realization of the aims and objectives of these relations and suggest remedies and make other suggestions relating to the terms of the committee’s deliberations. The outcome of the investigation was a Report of the Committee on International Education Programmes, dated October 13, 1995. The report was discussed exhaustively at the Executive Committee meeting held on 7 March, 1996 during which the Committee recommended to the Academic Board, the setting up of an Office of International Education Programmes which, among others, would promote and co-ordinate all the University’s external relations, including international students, Fulbright Scholars, staff on exchange and external staff training programmes.
The all around hospitality I experienced while at UG, and in Ghana as a whole, made me even more proud to have Ghanaian blood. The atmosphere in Ghana was so friendly, inspirational, and welcoming throughout my whole stay and this is something that would stick with me forever. And I’ll definitely never forget how delicious the food was!
