The University of Ghana-Legon

The NYU Accra program was created within a larger community of universities and scholars and has deeply integrated itself within the culture of Accra. NYU Accra enjoys a strong multicultural exchange with scholars and students at our partner university in Accra; the University of Ghana-Legon. Many students compliment their studies at the NYU academic center by enrolling directly in one or two courses at our University of Ghana-Legon.  

Widely recognized as one of the top institutions of higher education in West Africa, the University of Ghana-Legon, based on the Oxbridge model (reflecting Ghana’s former status as a British colony), is the country’s flagship university. Home to some of West Africa’s foremost scholars, it offers hundreds of courses and a full range of academic programs with particular strengths in African studies, the social sciences, and the performing arts.
