Why The Name Public University?
These educational facilities are mostly funded by public means through a national or subnational government, as opposed to private universities. Whether a national university is considered public varies from one country (or region) to another, largely depending on the specific education landscape. In some parts of the world (such as Ghana), public universities usually enjoy higher reputation domestically. Many of the prominent public universities are ranked among the best in the country.
