The Methodist University College Ghana (MUCG) is a private tertiary institution located in Dansoman Accra, Ghana. Ghana has six state universities and despite their existence, concerns had been expressed about the inadequacy of the institutional facilities in the universities to cater for qualified candidates to avail themselves of the opportunity for tertiary education.

It was then that, the Methodist Church Ghana was convinced with her unique record and experience in the provision of education at the basic, secondary and teacher education levels, it could make a contribution to the solution of the problems of offering education at all levels.

The church then decided to establish a Methodist University College in 1997. After preparations and processes, the Methodist University College Ghana (MUCG) was accredited by the National Accreditation Board in August 2000 and it began academic work in October 2000.

The university has three campuses, Dansoman Campus which is the main campus, Tema Campus, and Wenchi Campus.

MUCG aims at imparting knowledge and skills in disciplines relevant to national development within the context of general global development and at the same time an all-round development of the students mentally, physically and spiritually on the basis of Christian principles.

MUCG seeks to promote and develop academic excellence, spirituality, morality and service within the Ghanaian society. MUCG counts over 4000 students held by over 194 staff.

Methodist University College offers several facilities to its staff and students in order to ease their stay on campus. One of this facility is a library. MUCG has graduated some notable alumni like Serwaa Amihere – a Journalist, Ekow Hayford – a Politician, Edmund Benjamin-Addy – Businessperson, Alfred Kwesi Manyeh – a Researcher

Accra is the capital and largest city of Ghana. The city lies on a cliff that spreads northward over the Accra plains. The name Accra comes from an Akan word “nkran” that means black ants in the vicinity.

Accra is the capital and largest city of Ghana. The city lies on a cliff that spreads northward over the Accra plains. The name Accra comes from an Akan word “nkran” that means black ants in the vicinity.

When the Portuguese first settled on the coast of what is now known as Ghana, in 1482, Accra was occupied by several villages of the Ga tribe. Between 1650 and 1680 the Europeans built three trading posts along the coast, known as Fort James (English), Fort Crevecoeur (Dutch), and Christiansburg Castle (Danish).

After a tribal war, the major Ga towns on the Accra plains were displaced and drawn to the coast by the prospect of profitable trade with the Europeans. As a result, three coastal villages that are Osu (Christiansborg), Dutch Accra (later called Ussher Town), and James Town sprang up, becoming the nuclei of what was to be Accra.

Accra later grew into a prosperous trading centre and after the Danes and the Dutch left the region in 1850, Accra became the capital of the British Gold Coast colony. After independence, Accra became the country’s capital, acting as its administrative, economic, and educational centre.

Accra is influenced by the local steppe climate with annual average temperatures ranging from 24 degrees Celsius to 31 degrees Celsius. The total population of Accra is just over 2.4 million, and it is the Greater Accra Region’s economic and administrative hub and serves as the anchor of the larger Greater Accra Metropolitan Area (GAMA).

It is inhabited by about 4 million people, making it the thirteenth-largest metropolitan area in Africa. The Ghanaian culture is characterised by a host of social gatherings – both colourful and musical in nature. The celebration of festivals is an essential part of life, whether for childbirth, rites of passage, puberty, marriage or death.

Accra’s largest contributions revolve around the manufacturing and financial sectors. It also has a substantially sized service sector, and fishing is deemed important to the city.

Accra is one of Ghana’s most historic cities. It is best known for the Independence Square which contains monuments of Ghana’s independence struggle, including the Independence Arch, the Black Star Gate, and the Liberation Day Monument.

Another visible historical landmark is the Jamestown Lighthouse that was constructed in 1875 by the British. The city encourages relaxation and refreshment through the presence of numerous parks like the Labadi Beach, the Osu Castle, and the Kwame Nkrumah Mausoleum & Memorial park (final resting place of Ghana’s first president, and it contains photos, artefacts and an insight into the life of Dr Nkrumah).

It promotes cultural exploration through the W.E.B Dubois Memorial Centre, the Artist Alliance Gallery and the National Theatre. Ghana is a country with a deep sports heritage and Accra being its capital upholds that heritage through the Accra Sports stadium, a 39,800 all-seater and multipurpose stadium.

The Makola Market is a renowned marketplace and shopping district in the city, where a wide array of products is sold. Accra’s transportation network is served through its airports, namely the Kotoka International Airport and the Accra International Airport.

The city possesses a raft of health centres that cater to the health needs of the population. Provisions for worship are put in place through numerous worship houses like the Cathedral Church of the Most Holy Trinity and the Accra Central Mosque.

The city is home to several higher education institutions like the University of Ghana, the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration, the University of Professional Studies, Accra, Ashesi University, Wisconsin International University College, Ghana, the Central University, the Pentecost University College, Ghana Technology University College,  Accra, just to name a few. The city, all of this taken into account, is an ideal location for further education a reason why the city has become a popular study abroad destination.
