The National Accreditation Board (NAB) has released a list of local and foreign tertiary institutions it described as "operating without accreditation."

Below is the full statement on the NAB website:

The following institutions have not been accredited as tertiary institutions to run diploma or any other tertiary programmes in Ghana. They are also not mandated to award or issue academic or professional certificates. Neither the institutions nor their programmes are accredited by the National Accreditation Board.

This is by no means an exhaustive list of institutions which have not been accredited to operate and award qualifications. The Board will continue to add to the list as and when any comes to its notice. Please note:

An accredited institution is a Public or Private institution that has been given full authority to operate as an academic institution by the government mandated body.

A Diploma is normally awarded by a tertiary institution after a candidate pursues a course of study spanning one to two years.

Tertiary institutions include a University, University College, and Post-Secondary Diploma awarding institution, Professional body awarding Certificates or Diplomas or Professional Training Institution.
