In 2024, ICEF Africa will head to Kigali, Rwanda, for a specialist networking event connecting international educators, including representatives from Indian universities, with African higher education institutions, as well as ICEF-screened recruitment agents from 25+ countries across Africa.

Sub-Saharan Africa continues to show exceptional growth in international education, with Nigeria consistently ranking in the top ten countries worldwide for outbound student mobility. Alongside Nigeria, Kenya has a rapidly growing “youth bulge”, with 25% of the Kenyan population aged 18-36, while Ghana, Uganda, Côte d’Ivoire, Cameroon, Zimbabwe, Senegal, Tanzania, and Rwanda have all seen significant increases in student interest in studying abroad.

Held at ​​the Kigali Convention Centre from 2-4 July 2024, ICEF Africa provides valuable access to this important range of student markets, and a unique opportunity to network with high-quality, pre-screened recruitment partners, as well as universities from across the continent looking to send students abroad, and to discuss alliances, exchange agreements and transnational education (TNE) opportunities.
