47 Tertiary Schools Operating Illegally in Ghana

The Ghana National Accreditations Board has released a list of 47 tertiary schools which according to them are operating illegally in the country.

According to the national accreditation board, these tertiary institutions are operating without the requisite license and documentation.

A statement from the Accreditation board listed the schools in the illegal business. These institutions are therefore not qualified to award any academic or professional certificate.

“The following institutions have not been accredited as tertiary institutions to run diploma or any other tertiary programmes in Ghana. They are also not mandated to award or issue academic or professional certificates. Neither the institutions nor their programmes are accredited by the National Accreditation Board. Employers and potential students are advised to consult the NAB before enrolling in any tertiary institution in Ghana.”

An accredited institution is a Public or Private institution that has been given full authority to operate as an academic institution by the government mandated body.
A Diploma is normally awarded by a tertiary institution after a candidate pursues a course of study spanning one to two years.
Tertiary institutions include a University, University College, and Post-Secondary Diploma awarding institution, Professional body awarding Certificates or Diplomas or Professional Training Institution.

This is by no means an exhaustive list of institutions which have not been accredited to operate and award qualifications. The Board will continue to add to the list as and when any comes to its notice.
