The mandate of the Unit is to coordinate the development and implementation of the College’s Internationalisation Strategy in line with the University of Ghana’s Internationalisation Strategy. The Unit also serves as a reference point that is well positioned to develop, implement and lead an all-inclusive internationalisation strategy for the College. In this regard, the Unit is committed to fostering an environment that celebrates diversity, encourages collaborative learning because, a true sustainable education transcends borders.

The above fall in line with the objectives of College of Education, which include the promotion of academic excellence grounded on partnerships and international education that is sustainable. The College is therefore poised to use International Programmes as a conduit to a world of opportunities for our students, faculty, administrators, staff and all our stakeholders. In furtherance of this, the College has a very strong Distance Education Programme that uses emerging and relevant technologies to enhance teaching, learning and administration.

Through strategic partnerships with prestigious universities, organisations and institutions worldwide, the Unit offers a diverse range of exchange programmes, study abroad opportunities, cultural exchanges, internship programmes and other exciting programmes. From these engagements, our students and staff have the chance to immerse themselves in new cultures, languages, and academic frameworks, broadening their horizons and challenging their perspectives.

Beyond our traditional academic programmes, our work and outlook focus on International Programmes that emphasises the value of authentic cultural exchange and mutual understanding. We believe that learning from one another's traditions, beliefs and experiences is essential in building a harmonious world.
