Immerse Yourself in An Overseas Education
Webster Ghana offers the opportunity to study abroad throughout our network of campuses, after one year of study at the Ghana campus. Start in Ghana, and head out to any of our other campuses in the USA, Geneva, Switzerland, Leiden, Netherlands, Vienna, Austria, Athens, Greece, and Tashkent, Uzbekistan, as well as Shanghai and Chengdu joint MBA programs in China. Our study abroad programs run for an academic year, full semester, 8-week term, or summer term.
We warmly welcome foreign students from the US, UK, Canada and other nations to the Ghana campus, where we’ve designed a unique study abroad program that affords students a rich cultural experience in the heart of East Legon, Accra. Undergraduate and grad students can study abroad with us in Ghana and discover Africa, while still earning credit toward an American degree.
