MEDICARE COLLEGE OF APPLIED SCIENCES
MEDICARE COLLEGE OF APPLIED SCIENCES
About: Medicare College of Applied Sciences began in 1995 as Medicare Research Centre, a reputable laboratory that offered excellent services in clinical diagnosis. That same year the cenntre commenced the training of laboratory assistants for use within the laboratory. The efficiency with which these technicians performed their duty endeared them to the hearts of other clinics and laboratories in Kumasi. Soon after our first graduates passed out, other students enrolled to undertake apprenticeship at Medicare Research Centre. All our products are highly motivated because of the excellent practical tuition we have given over the years. Today, they are working in clinics and hospitals, both private and government owned, around the country, with some managing hospital laboratories. In October 2010, it was decided to institutionalize our training program. For that reason, the Medicare College of Applied Sciences was formed to offer diploma in Laboratory Practice and Management. We believe that though useful, theoretical education has limited benefits, as graduates are usually not well prepared for work in clinical laboratories and industry due to their limited practical knowledge. Often, such graduates would have to receive on the job training in order to be productive. That is expensive to employers, and explains why many graduates are unemployed today. Medicare College of Applied Sciences is, today, pursuing an alternative approach to graduate unemployment. The policy is to lay more emphasis on practical training for students in their chosen fields of endeavor. This conviction has prompted the establishment of well-equipped laboratories for the training of our precious students. Furthermore, our students are trained to do research in areas relevant to their training, and to be independent and assertive graduates. For these reasons we expect them to come out highly qualified, motivated, and ready to work as career technicians.

UNIVERSITY OF GHANA
UNIVERSITY OF GHANA
About: THE UNIVERSITY OF GHANA was founded in 1948 as the University College of the Gold Coast on the recommendation of the Asquith Commission, on Higher Education in the then British colonies. The Asquith Commission, which was set up in 1943 to investigate Higher Education, recommended among other things, the setting up of University Colleges in association with the University of London. This was followed up by a number of separate Commissions in different regions. The West Africa Commission was under the Chairmanship of the Rt. Hon. Walter Elliot. The Elliot Commission published a majority report which recommended the establishment of two University Colleges in the Gold Coast (Ghana) and Nigeria, and a minority report which held that only one University College for the whole of British West Africa was feasible. The British Government at first accepted the minority report of the Elliot Commission and decided that a University College for the whole of British West Africa should be established at Ibadan in Nigeria. But the people of the Gold Coast could not accept this recommendation. Led by the scholar and politician, the late Dr. J.B. Danquah, they urged the Gold Coast Government to inform the British Government that the Gold Coast could support a University College. The British Government accordingly reviewed its decision and agreed to the establishment of the University College of the Gold Coast. The University College of the Gold Coast was founded by Ordinance on August 11, 1948 for the purpose of providing for and promoting university education, learning and research. Its first Principal was the late Mr. David Mowbray Balme. Mr. Balme was far-sighted, courageous and dedicated to the promotion of scholarship. By his vision, industry and single-mindedness of purpose, he built a college and laid the foundations for a sound University which is now a source of pride. In his ten years of Principalship, he created an institution whose key-note was orderly living with dignity in a community of scholars. One of the recommendations of the Asquith Commission was that the British Government should set up an Inter-Universities Council to advise on all matters relating to Higher Education in the new British Colonies. The Inter-Universities Council served the new University College of the Gold Coast in an advisory capacity, but it approved all academic appointments. This arrangement helped the College to maintain the high academic standards associated with the Universities in Britain. Also, it enabled the College to seek support of the Council in obtaining funds from the United Kingdom Government sources. From its inception, the University College of the Gold Coast was admitted to the Scheme of Special Relationship extended by the University of London to certain English and overseas University Colleges. Under this scheme, the University College was allowed to teach for the external degree examinations of London University. It also allowed the College to modify the London syllabuses to suit local conditions and to take part in the setting and marking of examinations. But London University gave final approval to courses and examinations since the degrees given were those of the University of London. For thirteen years, therefore, the University College looked up to two separate institutions in Great Britain: to the Inter-Universities Council for guidance on its broad policy, and to the University of London for approval and control of details of degree regulations. The University College benefitted greatly from this arrangement which certainly helped to maintain its high academic standards. In the 1960-61 academic year, the College Council made a request to the Government of Ghana for legislation to constitute the University College into a University with the power to award its own degrees. The Government appointed an International Commission to examine the problem. On the recommendations of that Commission, the University of Ghana was set up by an Act of Parliament on October 1, 1961 (Act 79). The then President of the Republic of Ghana, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, became the first Chancellor of the University, with Nana Kobina Nketsia IV, BLitt DPhil (Oxon), Omanhene of Essikado, as the (Interim) Vice Chancellor.The University of Ghana, the premier university and the largest university in Ghana was founded as the University College of the Gold Coast by Ordinance on August 11, 1948 for the purpose of providing and promoting university education, learning and research. As a University poised to distinguish itself in the area of research to make an impact at the national and international level, the University has launched a new Strategic Plan. http://www.ug.edu.gh/pad/publication/ug-strategic-plan This new strategic plan (2014-2024) is intended to consolidate the gains made from the review of the University’s mission and practices and situate these within the context of a very dynamic environment of higher education in Ghana and beyond. Our Vision To become a world class research-intensive University over the next decade. Our Mission We will create an enabling environment that makes University of Ghana increasingly relevant to national and global development through cutting-edge research as well as high quality teaching and learning.

ALL NATIONS UNIVERSITY COLLEGE
ALL NATIONS UNIVERSITY COLLEGE
About: All Nations University College (ANUC) was established by the All Nations Full Gospel Church (ANFGC), Toronto, Canada through the All Nations International Development Agency (ANIDA). The Progenitor of the vision, Dr. Samuel Donkor challenged the African diaspora in North America to support the development of Africa by investing in Human Resource Development through quality higher education. The mission was to develop a new breed of leaders for the continent with holistic education that emphasizes academic excellence, Christian values, discipline and ethical values in a Christ centered environment. The government of Ghana readily embraced the idea in 1988, when Dr. Donkor sought permission for the All Nations University. But it was not until 1996 when the master plan was presented to the National Accreditation Board (NAB). Upon the advice of NAB, the University was incorporated in April 1996 and subsequently received the authority to establish the All Nations University in May 1996. After years of preparations, the University opened its doors to 37 pioneering students on November 4, 2002 for the Business and Computer Science undergraduate programs. Today ANUC has 12 accredited programs and over 2500 students

UNIVERSITY OF MINES AND TECHNOLOGY
UNIVERSITY OF MINES AND TECHNOLOGY
About: The University of Mines and Technology (UMaT) started as the Tarkwa Technical Institute (TTI) on 3rd November, 1952 but was officially commissioned by the Government of Ghana, more precisely by His Excellency the Governor of the Gold Coast, Sir Charles Noble Arden Clarke, on 7th October, 1953. In 1961, the Government, upon the advocacy of the Ghana Chamber of Mines, redefined the mission of TTI to incorporate the training of mining technicians and other middle level manpower for the country’s mining and related industries. In 1961, it was reorganized to become the Tarkwa School of Mines (TSM) to train the required manpower for the mining and allied industries in Ghana. In 1976, the Government took cognizance of the capability of TSM and its strategic location, Tarkwa, which is at the centre of mining activities in the country. As this location gave TSM a special strength for mining education, TSM was affiliated to the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) as a faculty of the University so as to enable TSM offer degree, diploma and certificate programmes in mining and related fields. The name TSM was changed to KNUST School of Mines (KNUSTSM), Tarkwa. The KNUSTSM, Tarkwa and the Kumasi School of Mines were put together to become the Institute of Mining and Mineral Engineering (IMME). In 1988, a University Rationalization Committee (URC), commissioned by the Ministry of Education, recommended the development of the School and its conversion into a University. In 2000, the conversion of KNUSTSM into a University was again strongly recommended by Louis Berger Inc. in association with Kwame Asante and Associates in a report on partial commercialization of KNUST. In 2001, the Council of KNUST considered and approved proposals and recommendations of the Academic Board to merge the School of Mines at Kumasi and the School of Mines at Tarkwa into the Western University College of KNUST, Tarkwa. On 3rd November, 2004, at exactly 11.35hrs GMT, the Parliament of the Republic of Ghana passed the bill on the University of Mines and Technology into an Act of Parliament. On 11th November, 2004, the President of Ghana gave the Presidential Assent and on 12th November, 2004 the University of Mines and Technology, Tarkwa Act 2004 (Act 677) was gazetted and thus, became a law. Vision and Mission Statements Vision The vision of the University is to be a Centre of Excellence in Ghana and Africa for producing world-class professionals in the fields of mining, petroleum, technology and related disciplines. Mission The mission is to provide higher education in mining, petroleum, technology and related disciplines through effective teaching and learning; to promote knowledge through active research and dissemination of information and to offer professional services through extension activities to the mining and allied industries.

GHANA ARMED FORCES COMMAND & STAFF COLLEGE
GHANA ARMED FORCES COMMAND & STAFF COLLEGE
About: VISION To project GAFCSC as a Center of Excellence and as one of the leading Staff Colleges in Africa and the rest of the World .MISSION To train selected middle level officers of the Ghana Armed Forces, other security services, and qualified civilians as well as officers of friendly Armed Forces, for middle level policy, command, staff and leadership functions in joint, combined and multi-agency operations. To provide higher engagements, within the national and international environment .The Ghana Armed Forces Command and Staff College (GAFCSC) was established in 1963 with the mandate to train officers of the Ghana Armed Forces and allied officers of Africa in command and staff responsibilities. Over the years, it has received and trained personnel from sister African nations and has concentrated on core military/defence programmes, leading to the award of Pass Staff College (PSC) certificate. The need for venturing into other programmes that would arm graduates of GAFCSC with the requisite knowledge was necessitated by imperatives of the global system. The Ghana Armed Forces (GAF) has participated in peace support operations since 1960. It is this imperative that informed the decision to widen the scope of courses run by the GAFCSC. The College therefore sought collaboration with the University of Ghana and GIMPA to run various courses to satisfy the felt need already mentioned above. Having obtained Institutional Accreditation, the College is now poised to run its own courses, while not truncating the collaborative link with the aforementioned institutions. Towards the realization of its new focus and aims, the College embarked upon massive infrastructural expansion. A new complex to house the College has been completed. It has all the facilities needed for running the programmes envisaged including classrooms, administrative offices, an auditorium, audio-visual aid systems, a library (including a laboratory) etc. GAFCSC is noted, as a world class College and a regional training centre, not only in Defence and Military Studies, but also in Governance and Leadership, International Politics, Administration and Management, as well as Crisis and Conflict Management. In this, the College has collaborated with both local and international institutions of higher learning – University of Ghana, Legon, Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA), Cranfield University (UK), and Bradford University (UK).
