Gender equality is one of the key challenges facing society today. Across the world, it manifests in many forms, including pay, employment opportunities and access to education.

The United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) look to tackle some of today’s biggest global issues, and SDG 5 addresses the issue of gender equality.

Top 4 Universities in Ghana Promoting Gender Equality In 2023


  1. Ashesi University

Ashesi University’s mission is to propel an African renaissance by educating next-generation ethical, entrepreneurial leaders and raising the bar for higher education in Africa.

Located in Ghana, this non-profit, multidisciplinary university combines a rigorous liberal arts core with degree programs in Computer Science, Business Administration, Management Information Systems, and Engineering.

A student-led honour code, hands-on learning, integrated community service, and real-world projects prepare students to develop solutions for the challenges facing their individual communities, countries and the continent.

Ashesi is now recognised as a leader in higher education in Africa, In 2018, the President of Ghana granted the University a Charter to operate as a fully autonomous institution; no longer to be supervised by a public university under Ghana’s accreditation system.

Only 5 out of Ghana’s 86 private universities have a charter, and Ashesi is the youngest in Ghana to have achieved such recognition. In 2020, Ashesi was ranked among the world’s top 400 universities in the Times Higher Education University Impact Rankings; a ranking based on measurement of actions being taken by universities to help achieve the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. The university ranked highest in Ghana, and ninth in Africa.

2. Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology

Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology has a history that dates back to 1951 when the Kumasi College of Technology was established. In 1961 the college was granted full university status and it became Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology.

The university is located in Kumasi, a city in southern Ghana. Kumasi is the capital of the Ashanti Region and is the second largest city in Ghana after Accra, the capital.

There are six colleges within the university: the college of agriculture and natural resources, college of art and built environment, college of humanities and social sciences, college of engineering, college of health sciences and the college of science. These colleges are comprised of faculties, which are subdivided into departments offering a range of undergraduate and graduate degree programmes.

In 1974 the Board of Graduate Studies was established to provide further education to students looking to specialise in science and technology. In 2000 the board was given the status of a school and has since been developing graduate programmes that contribute to the economic, scientific, technological and social advancement of Ghana.

Outside of the classroom students are encouraged to get involved in the university’s extracurricular activities. There are currently more than 100 student groups and organisations on campus but this number is increasing every year as students start new clubs to fit their interests.

3. University of Health and Allied Sciences

The University of Health and Allied Sciences was established in 2011, with its main campus located in Ho in Ghana, and the second campus in Hohoe. UHAS, as it is abbreviated, was the first university in the Volta region, and is the only state university entirely dedicated to training health professionals in Ghana.

At the university, there are 18 undergraduate programmes across six schools and one institute: allied health sciences, basic and biomedical sciences, medicine, nursing and midwifery, public health, pharmacy, and health research.

The university also covers education and research in the following areas: sports and exercise medicine, dentistry, medical education and traditional and alternative medicines, however these are yet to be formally established.

There is also vocational training at the University of Health and Allied Sciences, which takes place during the students holiday period for around eight weeks.

During this programme, students work at health facilities, institutions and communities across the country to gain hands-on experience in healthcare provision. This is an opportunity for students to gain knowledge from professionals and develop their skills in healthcare.

Ho is a district in the Volta region of southeast Ghana and is also its administrative and commercial centre, and Hohoe is the capital of the Volta region’s Hohoe municipality.

The University of Health and Allied Sciences is accompanied by several other universities and colleges in the Volta region, including the Nursing Training College in Go and the Jaskian College of Education.

4. University of Professional Studies, Accra

The University of Professional Studies (UPSA) is a public university in Accra, Ghana that was formerly known as the Institute of Professional Studies (IPS).

The main campus is located in East Legon, a peaceful and well-developed suburb of Accra, the capital city of Ghana.

Established in 1965 as a private professional business education college, UPSA was the first university in Ghana to provide both academic and business professional education.

It was taken over by the government in 1978 and now has a student body of around 11,000 students, teaching in three main areas: business development and skills training, research and community service and teaching and learning.

The surrounding area of the university boasts a wide array of restaurants and shopping centres for students’ convenience. The campus is also equipped with a full medical clinic, a canteen for students, a state-of-the-art five-storey library complex, counselling services, and a hostel for students within walking distance.

Home to over 2.2 million people, Accra is a modern metropolis with architecture that reflects its history.

It served as the capital of the British Gold Coast between 1877 and 1957, with the remaining 19th Century’s colonial architecture in contrast with contemporary skyscrapers. East Legon has a great shopping scene, with many boutiques, convenience stores, book shops and the main shopping centre.

Widely considered one of Africa’s safest cities, there are a number of public and private universities. UPSA’s chancellor is currently Professor Abednego Feehi Okoe Amartey.

The university has decided to rename itself after its founder and first director, Nana Opoku Ampomah. The UPSA will then be known as the Opoku Ampomah University of Professional Studies (OAUPS) when the process is complete.
