“We’ve taken particular care to attract women into our programme, believing that the inclusion of talented women in science and technology has huge potential for development in West Africa. We’re pleased to say that we now have a much higher ratio of female students studying Computer Science at Lancaster University Ghana than is the case even at the Lancaster UK campus.”  Yaw Busia, Computer Science Lecturer

It’s not all work and no play.  Last year we spent the week having debates, organising symposia and participated in a moot court but we also took a day off to let off steam at the beach – it was fun!” Maame Mensah Bonsu, Law Lecturer.
