The University of Salford and Salford Business School recently featured in two big and very different events in Ghana.

The University attended the February UK Higher Education Exhibition and over a two day period advised over 250 students, and then attended a garden party at the Minister’s residence. Staff, students and alumni had a great time looking at trends in education. Furthermore, the College of Business and Law received over 70% of the enquiries.

The Challenge in Ghana

The University were also the sponsors of a popular Ghanaian talent show called ‘The Challenge’, where young people with innovative ideas applied and were selected to present their concept on national TV (similar to ‘The Apprentice’ in the UK). The show attracted an estimated 10 million viewers and the winner of the competition was offered a scholarship to study at the University of Salford.
