Admissions

Application Process

Academic City is pleased to offer admission to its first-year students in two distinct cohorts, with the first starting in September and the second starting in January. Upon completion of their first year, both cohorts will merge to continue their academic pursuits. The application process is streamlined and can be efficiently completed through our online portal. Our Admissions Office, located at our Haatso campus in Accra, operates from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM daily. Our knowledgeable and friendly admissions team is available to assist prospective students during these hours through various means of communication, including phone, WhatsApp, and Facebook.

Ways to Apply

Admission to ACity is competitive, but the admission process is a personal one. Each application is reviewed holistically to understand the strength of each student’s academic preparation including their performance on final exams, counselor recommendations, and their personal career interests. We seek applicants from a variety of geographic, social, cultural, economic, and ethnic backgrounds.

Our online application is simple and takes 5-7 minutes to fill. Keep handy your parents' contact information, academic qualifications and program of interest. Applications that are complete and include a personal essay will be looked upon favorably.
