Thanks for your question.
Can you apply to stay here on some other form of visa (eg. worker's) following the completion of your studies?

my husband is a ghanaian and he came to join me as my dependent here in the uk. i cannot apply to stay here on workers visa. dont i have enough grounds to apply for permit on compassionate or humanitarian grounds here.

This is not a straightforward situation. There is no traditional immigration category under which you could apply, so you would therefore have to make an application to the UKBA to get them to exercise their discretion on the facts of your case an grant discretionary leave to remain.

You should try searching online newspaper websites both in the UK and that of your home country.

You've got also search similar charities and other wider forms of internet searches. There is not magic bullet, it's a matter of taking the time to conduct thorough researches I'm afraid. Kind regards,
