About Us

The Centre for International Education (CIE), University of Cape Coast, was established in 1994 under a USAID-sponsored five-year programme to promote, support and co-ordinate all facets of international education activities in the University.

It has undergone many changes over the years, at times called Development Linkages, Office of International Programmes, and now the Centre for International Education. However, these changes have not changed the mandate of the office.

To promote meaningful international experiences for members of the University community through the establishment of international linkages and partnerships in the areas of international students’ recruitment, staff/faculty and student exchanges, research collaborations and information sharing.

To position the University of Cape Coast as the globally preferred University that provides international education for staff/faculty and students.

To fulfil the above-mentioned vision and mission, the following core values will guide the activities of the Centre:

  • Excellence in fostering international linkages and partnerships

  • Ethical and Responsible Behaviour in acting honestly and responsibly

  • Equality of access in providing equal opportunity to all by promoting a spirit of fairness, trustworthiness, respect, and teamwork among our staff/faculty, students, and partner institutions.

  • Creativity in improving the quality and efficiency of services for international students
