The International Programmes Office (IPO) pairs visiting students with Ghanaian students who are in excellent academic standing and are of good behaviour, as peer partners to enhance cross cultural experiences. The IPO launched this programme in order to ensure that the international students integrate properly in the university and the country at large.
As part of their activities, they go on city and campus tours, and attend events that display our rich Ghanaian culture including weddings, funerals and festivals. They also assist with airport pickup and drop-off, orientations, durbars and the annual International Week celebrations.
Peer partners are carefully selected and interviewed by staff of IPO before they are assigned the role.
