In the years since, UCC has been a driving force in meeting and maintaining manpower in many industries and across many disciplines, including doctors and health care professionals, business professionals, administrators, legal professionals, and agriculturalists. The popular school currently educates 78,485 students.
The 2023 Times Higher Education named University of Cape Coast the number 1 University in Ghana, the number 1 University in West Africa, the number 4 University in Africa, the number 24 University globally for research influence and is among the top 400 schools internationally.
