Ghana Study and Training


The school system in Ghana consists of a free and compulsory first phase comprising nine years of primary school. (A two-year preschool is considered part of the undergraduate education, but is not compulsory.) A second phase consists of post-secondary education, where students are prepared for technical and economic study paths. Those who complete the second phase can then move on to various post-secondary education. Ghana has six state and about ten private universities as well as a large number of other institutions that provide specialized higher education. See TOPSCHOOLSINTHEUSA for TOEFL, ACT, SAT testing locations and high school codes in Ghana.
