MountCrest University College

Located in Kanda, Accra, MountCrest University College (MCU) is accredited by the National Accreditation Board (NAB) as a research and teaching institution to run undergraduate and postgraduate programmes. All programmes are affiliated to the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Kumasi.

MCU was established in August 2008 by Mr and Mrs Kwaku Ansa-Asare as a fitting memorial for their son, Kwame Ansa-Asare, who in his short span of life on earth shared whatever he had with all and sundry. Kwame is the inspiration for our motto, “Ut Vitam Habeant” which, translated into English, means “That They May Have Life”, reflecting motivation, vision and commitment.




Mountcrest University College has since its inception welcomed students from African countries notably, Nigeria, Benin, Sierra Leone, Cameroun, Gambia, Benin, Congo, Kenya, Luanda, Gabon, Rwanda and Angola. Mountcrest will continue to attract students from Ghana and abroad.   Most students have come to Mountcrest for our highly regarded undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in Law, Public Health and Health Services Management and look forward to enjoying the benefits of living in a cosmopolitan African city.

Students come from the sub-region to seek a world class education in a stimulating learning environment under a world-class faculty with considerable teaching experience and research publications.


Mountcrest University is currently undergoing accreditation process to mount programmes in Medicine, Nursing, Midwifery, Medical Laboratory Sciences, Physician Assistants, Business Administration, Social Work, History, Political Sciences and Religions.
