Most of the lecturers deliver lectures with an air of professionalism. They mostly make sure the students actually grasp what they deliver. Overall, it was a nice experience

What is like at the University of Ghana?🤔
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

The experience at the University of Ghana was an exciting one. The lecturers do more than lecturing, they make sure every student understands what they teach without leaving anyone out. There are regular quizzes organized to keep students on track. There are also tutorials for better understanding.
