An Educational exhibition dubbed “The British Council Education UK Science and MBA Fair” has taken place at the conference room of the College of Distance Education (CoDE), University of Cape Coast.
The exhibition, which was run concurrently with seminars, was aimed at creating opportunities for both staff and students of the university to gain admission to some UK universities for further studies. Some of the participating Universities for the fair were University of Aberdeen, University of Southampton, University of Hull, London Metropolitan University, University of Nottingham, the University of the West of England and the University of Westminster.
Opening the fair, the Vice–Chancellor, Prof. D. D. Kuupole indicated that the relationship between the British Council and the University of Cape Coast dated back to the early 2000s, when some departments in UCC were involved in the Developing of Partnerships in Higher Education programme.He said management of the university was in full support of the event, especially at a time when internationalization of Higher Education has become very crucial for all universities. He reiterated that “the University of Cape Coast remains committed to becoming a university with a world-wide acclaim.”
In pursuing this agenda, Prof. Kuupole noted that management has put in place structures for making the university more internationally visible. He mentioned the establishment of the Centre for International Education (CIE) to serve as link for research and academic collaboration with institutions within Ghana and abroad”.
The Vice-Chancellor commended the universities that have travelled from the United Kingdom to come and interact with lecturers, staff and students about educational prospects in their respective universities.
