You have my sympathies.
To clarify, are you asking how your fiance can come to this country and if you want him to come temporarily as a visitor or with a view to a longer term stay?
Well, the quickest way to get him over would be by way of a visitor's visa. He would have to apply directly to the British embassy in ghana for a 6 month visa. He would have to show that:-
Provided he can show the above he can come here for a 6 month period.
It would take a lot longer (2 month minimum) to apply for a fiance visa. He would have to apply to the British Embassy showing that:-
He would not able to to work so if you are in financial difficultly the it would be difficult to obtain a fiance visa in this way I'm afraid, and going for a 6 month visitor's visa would be th better option.
Were he to apply for a fiance visa he would need to to apply for settlement (ie. fiance visa) by using VAF4 Settlement, available for download from UKBA's website. It would be best for either a solicitor in the UK to prepare it in consultation with both you and your wife before submitting it.

Your question will not close. If you require further infroamtion at a later time there is no need to post a further quesion - you can simply reply to this thead and I will answer for you at no extra charge.
It all depends on the Court in question. I attach a link to the student page of the UKBA website so that you can reference it against the course you think is suitable to see if he is eligible:-
I would warn though, that it will probably take a longer time for him to obtain a student visa than a visitor one. If you want him here quickly then you should opt for a visitor's visa.
He can always return home at the end of it and then make another application for a student visa. He should not overstay his visitor's visa as this will severly impede any subsequent application he would wish to make.
I hope this clarifies, if so please click accept.
