Welcome to the information page for applicants who have completed studies in Ghana, with information about meeting the English requirement, what previous studies meet the basic entry requirements, and any special documentation instructions. 

Start with Step 1 - Finding out what I need to submit

There are general instructions for all applicants; it is important that you start with Step 1 and then work your way through the remaining steps in order to submit the right documents in the right way.

Meeting the English requirement - bachelor's and master's level studies

You can meet the English requirement with your upper secondary studies with:

  • GCE O-level in English
  • English in your SSCE/WASSCE

If you’re documenting your English based on your upper secondary studies, you must provide upper secondary documents in order to demonstrate you meet the requirement. Please submit your upper secondary documents as indicated below under ’For bachelor’s level studies’.

Students with a Bachelor’s degree from a recognised university in Ghana are considered to have sufficient level of English.

You can also demonstrate that you meet the English language requirement through an internationally approved English test. Find out more at the following link:

Submit scratch card for verification

In addition to a copy of your certificate, you are also required to submit a scratch card. Alternatively, you can send your serial number and PIN on a piece of paper. You may also submit the scratch card using the contact form. Before submitting any such data, check that your results are available on the WAEC website.

A Bachelor's degree meets the general criteria.
