Ghana

The University of Birmingham has a thriving population of Ghanaian students following a range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses. The Law School receives a large number of applications from Ghana each year and have had a number of Ghanaian students study programmes within the School. 

The UK is the home of Common Law and traditional universities such as Birmingham carry a powerful international reputation leading to enhanced job prospects.

It is extremely beneficial to be trained at a UK university when looking for jobs as employers do rate the qualifications. (Ogoke Wilson Emeka, LLM)

Many nationality groups form student societies during their time at the University of Birmingham. This is an excellent way to keep in contact with home and also provides an opportunity to highlight your culture and customs in the UK.
