This survey explored the learning approaches among deaf students at the University of Education, Winneba (UEW), Ghana. Data were gathered from 31 out of 41 undergraduate deaf students. Participants were randomly sampled from levels 100, 200, 300 and 400. Data were gathered through the Approaches and Study Skills Inventory for Students (ASSIST, 1998). Data were analysed using descriptive statistics. Findings of the study suggest that participants preferred strategic approach to learning followed by the deep and surface approaches to learning in that order.
