Professor Matilda Steiner-Asiedu
Dean, School of Biological Sciences.


It is an honour and a privilege to have you visit our website. You are welcome to the School of Biological Sciences, the Centre of Excellence, where faculty, supporting staff and students work in an environment of freedom and respect for all. The faculty are wonderful and affable and very supportive of students.

The School of Biological Sciences was established in August 2014, when the University adopted the collegiate system of governance. We are one of the schools under the College of Basic & Applied Sciences, (CBAS) of the university.

The School also has five Departments under its umbrella namely; Animal Biology and Conservation Science, Biochemistry, Cell and Molecular Biology, Plant and Environmental Biology, Marine and Fisheries Sciences and Nutrition and Food Science.

The school supports Medical School, Dental School, Nursing School and the Biomedical and Allied Health Sciences with the basic science courses. It also has a larger portion of International students at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

The School collaborates with Industry and universities both local and international in teaching and research.

Our admission is highly competitive but application processes is very fair, as we admit students on merit.  I therefore invite you to take a look at our programmes on the website and you are most welcome to visit the School of Biological Sciences anytime you are on the University of Ghana campus or in Accra.  Kindly contact the Dean’s office for any further enquires you may have.

Stay blessed.

Professor Matilda Steiner-Asiedu
