One of the crucial factors facing most developing countries, especially in sub-Saharan Africa is youth unemployment. The types of higher education institutions in Ghana include 10 public universities, eight technical universities, seven university-level professional training institutions and other polytechnic institutions. Overall, there are 138 tertiary institutions, including colleges of education and nursing training.
