Study at the University of Ghana

Legon comes from two indegenous Ga words: “ni-le” which is translated “knowledge” and “gon” which is translated as “hill”; thus Legon is the rendering of “nile-gon” – “hill of knowledge”; aptly describing the 121 metre altitude of the Legon Campus.

Welcome to the University of Ghana, the premier University in Ghana and one of the most prestigious universities in Africa where international students love to study.
