Accra, Ghana


Actor, Van Vicker, has graduated from African University College of Communications (AUCC) with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Strategic Communications. Star actor and movie producer Joseph Van Vicker has got his first (Bachelor’s) degree many years after completing his secondary education.

He also graduated with first-class honors while also bagging an award for the best student in his course.

Van, who is one of Ghana’s revered actors with a huge following, announced his graduation with photos on his Instagram on Sunday.

He said that it took him 21 years to enroll in a tertiary institution and that was because his single mom at the time could not afford to pay his fees.

He is therefore sharing his story now to encourage individuals never to give up on their dreams.

He wrote, “21 years later, here I stand before you with three achievements during my graduation; to God be the Glory. 1. 1st class honours. 2. Best Student in Strategic Communications 3. Best Communication Student Award. The above is within the context of my 2021 post on social media and is in no way presumptuous but uprightly to inspire – I could not enroll at a tertiary institution in 1997 because my single mother did not have the funds. If free SHS was available back in the day, most likely I would have graduated in 2000/2001.

“My career took off and I have been blessed but as someone who relishes education, getting that degree was just a matter of time. I complete my Masters programme this December and I am sorely motivated and committed to go even beyond, God willing. I thank all those who supported me and are supporting me during this journey.”

Van is one of Ghana’s celebrated actors and has featured in a lot of movies. He also won several awards and made name for himself beyond the African continent. But as human, as he is, he didn’t have it all with his education and therefore the need to make amends. Now he has it.
