Maxwell, actually China has already closed its border for better pandemic control. If you really need to go back, you should contact your school and the Chinese embassy in your country to see if they can help you to get a special visa.

Before you go to China, you had better contact a business partner in China to issue you an invitation letter, so that you are able to apply for a business visa.

Genny, if you are now in Ghana, you have to apply for a visa after the Chinese embassy resumes normal operation in order to enter China. I think a tourist visa is enough for you.
