In all the ten regions in Ghana, your tertiary education must be in Accra. Pulse.com.gh has given reasons why this must be the case.
You may be wondering why Accra? Below are some reasons why you should attend a tertiary institution in Accra.
1. High-quality education
Accra is the capital city of the country. You often get the best of most things if not everything in Accra. This includes the quality of education. You have access to well-resourced learning centres in the country. Remember that even though Ghanaian leaders have been doing their best to ensure decentralisation works, most things are still found in Accra.
2. Higher possibility of getting employed after school
This is not to say students who attend a tertiary institution in the other nine regions will not be employed but remember most corporate institutions have their head offices in Accra. Why embark on a six-hour journey to submit an internship letter when you could have done that in fifteen minutes if you were schooling in Accra?
3. Affordable cost of living
The truth is cost of living in Accra is high. But there is good news. There are places in Accra where you can actually buy quality items for less. All you need to do is ask, keep asking until you find a place where foodstuff, electrical appliances, clothes and any other essentials are sold at a cheaper price without compromising on quality.
4. Stunning surroundings and historic sites
You may be surprised by this, but make no mistake. In Accra you can get away from all the noise when you wish and also have the parties and buzz if you want. A walk in Jamestown will show you a lot of historic buildings. Likewise a trip to Ada will give you the serene atmosphere you would love for a long time.

5. An international outlook and community
Most of the international students who school in Ghana often choose a tertiary institution in Accra. If you are also in Accra, it means you will be creating a network of international friends for yourself.
6. A wide range of extracurricular activities
In Accra, the extracurricular activities one can indulge in. From arts to sports and all you can think of.
