Provost's Welcome Message

You are most welcome to our website. Our vision is to become the reference point in the delivery of distance education in Ghana, in particular, and in Africa at large.  In achieving this onerous but commendable task, the College has established over 70 learning centres throughout the country.  Thus, we present quality viable, employable model of higher education to the door step of our clients (students) so they can maintain their work engagement and still acquire higher education to improve upon their skills, make them more analytical and assertive. Our students are privileged to study in the comfort of their homes and obtain a University of Cape Coast degree by distance. 

The College runs two programmes – Education and Business – from the Diploma level through to the master’s degree level. As a distance education provider, we have put in place the necessary structures and mechanisms to ensure that our students are best served and trained without compromising on quality, which is the benchmark of this distinguished University of Competitive Choice. 

The inception of distance education has been the greatest hallmark which has characterised the University of Cape Coast. A large pool of resourceful graduates, who are impacting positively in both public and private sectors, have been churned out via our programmes. We are still solid and growing in strength. Currently, our students/clientele base is around forty thousand (40,000), and still counting. As we expand our clientele base, we commensurate with infrastructure growth. Apart from creating offices in all regional capitals, the College is spreading her tentacles across the country by putting up modern class facilities in strategic centres to enhance delivery of quality distance education. Some of these facilities are located at Papafio Hills in Accra, Dominase – near Kumasi (Ashanti Region), Agona Nyarkrom (Central Region), Wa (Upper West Region) and Zuarungu (Upper East Region). Beside the academic usage of these facilities, they will also serve as avenues for employment in the respective communities; thereby asserting the College’s involvement in corporate social responsibility of the University of Cape Coast. 

Our programmes aim at removing all barriers – be it geographical, cultural, religious, economic or social – to education. Maintaining such leading and quality standard, in the context of distance education delivery, is an enormous challenge. 

As a College, we have adequate and requisite material and human resources to meet expectations. However, this calls for a collective responsibility on all stakeholders to ensure that the College emanates excellence for the benefit of her cherished students.

Thank you.

Prof. Isaac K. A. Galyuon
