Why Study at ISSER

A period of study at ISSER can be academically and personally enriching. It is also a great career credential. Our programmes are designed to enable students to study in ways that will be useful for their future professional lives. We apply a range of teaching methodologies that reflect the complexity of development studies, which are carefully selected to meet the learning outcomes of each course. For all our programmes, we use a combination of intensive classroom training and hands-on skill-building.

A diverse range of resources are available to students and these include:

  • a stimulating programme of academic seminars, and other discussion platforms – which provide a fabulous opportunity for students  to learn about current development issues, and also to network and interact with a wide range of internal and external speakers.
  • A wide variety of high-level expertise and experience available at ISSER – into which students can tap.
  • the RIPS/ISSER Library
  • the Balme Libraryand a range of other resources available in the University of Ghana

Our training programme is backed by the understanding that change starts in the classroom. This translates into an approach that focuses on training the next generation of leaders.
