The National Accreditation Board has made a move we are not actually sure of it’s true impact as they have been silent about it. The board declared the number of both public and private institutions accredited to run various programs on it’s website  and the number declared showed it had clearly added new institutions. But upon thorough checks, it was found that the board has also removed institutions from its list for reasons best known to them and/or the institutions involved.

The declared accredited institutions in Ghana were as follows:

 NUMBER  CATEGORY OF INSTITUTION  TOTAL
    (1)  Public University  10
    (2)  Public Degree Awarding/Professional Institution  6
    (3)  Regionally-Owned (West Africa) Tertiary Institution  1
    (4)  Chartered Private Institution  4
    (5)  Private Tertiary Institutions Offering Degree and HND Programme  71
    (6)  Distance Learning Institution  1
    (7)  Tutorial College  8
    (8)  Polytechnic  10
    (9)  Private Colleges of Education  7
    (10)  Public Colleges of Education  38
    (11)  Colleges of Agriculture  1
    (12)  Public Nurses Training College 19
    (13)  Private Nurses Training College 10
    (14)  Registered Foreign Institution 7
Total 193
