The Global Harvest College is a tertiary educational institution in Gambia situated in the semi-rural village of Banjulinding. It was established early this century in the year 2000 and functioned as an officially accredited skills centre. Since then the GHC has since become a fully functioning higher education college.

It is registered and accredited with the National Training Authority (NTA) and was licensed to act as a training school in January 2011. It began classes in March of that same year.

GHC aims to provide skilled personnel by offering  relevant vocational courses and qualifications that meet the requirements of the economy. It aims to attract and enrol students from the surrounding communities as well as making available learning resources in a conducive and quiet environment. To encourage learning it offers scholarships to the people of Banjulinding each year.

Global Harvest College accepts people of all ages and it also offers adult numeracy and reading skills for mature students who wish to increase their skills set, to enhance their productivity and opportunities for finding gainful employment. This course is also intended for people who may have missed out on formal education or dropped out early and wish to get themselves into the educational system. Such students are advised to enrol on the Basic Functional Skills course as a first step to advancing to higher levels of learning.

Students who have already acquired basic and more advanced skills are put into the diploma or certificate level courses.
