The Track to Success
There was also a mini session between the delegates from the UK institutions and lecturers from tertiary institutions in Kumasi as a response to the high demands for PhD programmes in the academia enabling discussions on possible educational partnerships.
On Thursday, 12 February, 2015, delegates from the sixteen UK institutions went on an international schools and corporate tour in Accra and Tema with seven institutions visiting international schools and corporate institutions in Tema while the other nine toured international schools and corporate institutions in Accra. The corporate institutions visited included Cocoa Processing Company, Tema Oil Refinery, Ghana National Petroleum Corporation, Vodafone, uniBank and Stanbic Bank where the UK delegates actively engaged with staff and management of these organizations and institutions.
During the opening ceremony in Accra, our Country Director, Liliana Biglou noted that British Council Ghana was dedicated in ensuring that young Ghanaians interested in studying in the UK received the best knowledge and tools they required to enhance their studies.
The Deputy British High Commissioner to Ghana, Caron Roshler, also entreated students to use the opportunity to learn more about the courses and products offered by these prestigious universities. She mentioned that students who studied in the UK were enabled to become creative and independent thinkers, had the ability to adapt to a fast changing world and become global citizens.
