Our Story

It is a long established fact that a reade.


“A life best lived is by design and not by experience, failure, therefore, is only a choice but not the answer. You have the life to become whatever you ought to be.”

PENERIC, Director.


Darda Health Pre-University is the premier health pre-university in West Africa (Ghana). Over the years, statistics shows that most Senior High School (SHS) graduates hardly meet the minimum entry requirements set for admission at the various universities especially in the health related courses such as nursing, midwifery, medicine, pharmacy, among others. In an attempt to solve this unfortunate menace, Darda Health Pre-University was established to prepare students to take the WASSCE examinations again; once and for all in expectancy of better grades.


DARDA, operate as a private institution with a Senior High School status (pre-tertiary) and not a tertiary institution. This is to say that the recognition of certificates issued locally at the secondary level is accredited and issued by the Ghana Education Service (GES) and West African Examinations Council (WAEC) respectively.

We also prepare students to undertake University Access Course or Pre-University Diploma for level 200 admissions in the fields of Business Administration and ICT at various public and private universities.


We enroll Senior High School graduates with weak passes or those who failed their West African Examination Council’s (WAEC) exams into a one year remedial program blended with basics in the health courses like nursing, midwifery, pharmacy, medicine, etc. referred to as the pre-degree program.

Students are made to re-write those subjects (WASSCE) and also do a clinical attachment where upon successful completion, they gain direct admission into the colleges for a 3 year diploma or if university then 4 years Bachelor’s degree in their field of interest.

As a health pre-university we re-assure all those having failed or couldn’t get to their nursing and medical school dreams to re-position themselves with DARDA Health Pre-University.


SHS students who read Business and other non-science courses are also encouraged to apply as we change their electives to suit the entry requirements of both colleges and universities.

NVTI Healthcare and Medicine Counter Assistant (MCA) graduates are also admitted into our one year pre-degree program as a lot thought they were reading nursing and pharmacy respectively BUT only to complete and realize they were nowhere near their goals. It is not too late at all, just apply to us and we ever ready to welcome you. Even if you have F9 in chains don’t worry, apply.
