The first of its kind in sub-Sahara Africa. Speaking at the inauguration ceremony, CEO and Provost of the TAG/Lancaster University Ghana, Professor Malcolm McIver, said the university introduced world-class university standards to the African space.

“The driving force behind the launch of Lancaster University Ghana was two things; that Education is the key to individual and communities realising their potentials and was task commitment to deliver their very best learning experience in West Africa.”

After eight short years, the University has relocated to Tantra Hill, a suburb of Accra. Before now, the University was situated at East Legon.

The new campus comes with a fully furnished lecture room, a fully stocked library that serves the post-Covid virtual needs of students, and a state of the art computer lab.
