Webster University is a 106-year-old American university based in St. Louis, Missouri with 9 global campuses. The only Webster University campus in Africa is in the lovely neighborhood of East Legon in Accra, Ghana.
“Our network of international schools presents an unmatched opportunity for students in Ghana to study abroad, and undergraduate students in the African diaspora in the US, UK, Canada, and elsewhere also have the chance to spend a semester or year in Ghana with Webster University,” says Ms. Awoyaa Mensah, Director of Marketing & Corporate Partnerships at Webster University Ghana.
The study abroad in Ghana offer of Webster University is attractive for Black Americans and Africans in the Diaspora, including Ghanaians, mainly because many of such students may have been to Ghana only a few times and for short periods, or never. However, being in a safe and structured university environment means they can truly explore their roots, make new friends and discover their Motherland — all while still earning American academic credits.
The campus has beautiful residential facilities for foreign students who need accommodation during their time in Ghana; it also has ultra-modern classrooms, a well-stocked library, 24/7 security, an edgy student recreational center and stable wifi access. Off campus, the school organizes trips to some of Ghana’s most popular cultural and historic sites including the Cape Coast and Elmina castles, W.E.B Dubois Centre and the local open-air markets.
All study abroad students get the chance to give back and volunteer with local and international NGOs.

There is also an amazing opportunity for adults looking to pursue a Master’s degree at Webster to do so in Ghana’s capital city of Accra. Imagine being interested in an MBA or MA, International Relations, and actually being able to take graduate classes within an emerging market while building your global network of connections? You’re in Ghana for 1.5 years but are earning a quality American degree alongside cultural explorations.
Webster’s Ghana campus is very diverse and provides an incredible learning and extracurricular stage for heritage-seeking students too. Learn more about them from their official website at webster.edu.gh and tell them Oral Ofori sent you when you email them.
