“Subsequently, in September 2022, an official agreement was signed by the two parties, Wisconsin International University College Ghana and Cambridge Boxhill Language Assessment. This bilateral agreement in effect approved the Accra campus of WIUC Ghana as an appropriate hosting facility for the administration of the test,” he explained.

Professor Mireku added that the agreement makes WIUC Ghana the first and only venue to be licenced to host the administration of a Paper-Based OET Centre in the country.

In an interview with GBC Ghana Online on the sidelines of the event, Dr. Charles Acheampong, Director for Professional Studies, said one unique thing about the Paper-Based OET Centre is that all tests are paper-based unlike the computer-based tests done in other centres in West Africa.
