Information

Come and participate at the 10th edition of the ISFA International Student Fairs Africa - Fall 2018. 

Reasons to Attend

The exhibition will bring together students and international education providers with the focus on recruiting students for foundation, undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

Higher education has recorded strong growth in East Africa in recent years due to increased demand. The use of websites, subscribing to academic journals, use of intranet, social media and other e-learning tools have revolutionised the academic sector in East Africa.

Market Overview

Altogether, there are about 100 universities in East Africa, both public and private, with Kenya hosting the highest number, 40.

With local Kenyan universities not being able to offer enough places for students, more students are looking into opportunities to study overseas as they also wish to improve their career prospects in the labour market after graduation.

According to University World News, 57% of 1,044 Kenyan students polled in the recent survey said that they would prefer to study in a foreign university than a local one. The number of Kenyans issued with student visas has been on the rise in recent years according to government statistics.

An increase in Kenyan schools offering A-Levels and International Baccalaureate naturally increased the number of students willing to study abroad. Those ones who obtained the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) can still apply to foreign universities but most of such students choose to go for Access Courses abroad.

In the past decade Tanzania's public universities have witnessed rapid growth in enrolment. There are nearly 30 public and private universities in Tanzania. Demand for higher education is large with an estimated student population of 15,000.

According to a recent report from the Tanzania Education Sector Analysis, emphasis has been put on higher education, to adequately meet the growing demand from secondary school leavers and produce skills relevant to current and future economic growth. University enrolment has grown at an average annual rate of 30% over 2005-09.

Fair Outline

Main areas are undergraduate courses and postgraduate courses with a visible increase in interest for professional qualifications. Many foreign universities attract Kenyan students for access and foundation courses in marketing, business, management and IT.

The main subject areas are: business and finance, medicine and related sciences, IT, engineering, hotel management, humanities, law, science, MBA, and distant learning.

Reviews



Look forward to participating again in 2017

Thank you for a well organised fair. We look forward and would really like to participate in the 2017 ISFA Fairs in Nairobi and Mombasa.

Organisation and communication remains blameless

It will be a pleasure to see the ISFA team at their fairs in 2017, and many more years to come. Organisation and communication remains blameless. Good work team!! Thank you very much to all who helped us at the ISFA Fairs.

Keep up the excellent work!

The fair in Arusha was very good. We received a really good number of leads and the standard of students was exceptional. Both fairs in Kenya were also excellent and ran very smoothly. I must say, the irganisation of the ISFA fairs was very good and I will certainly look to participate in the next ISFA Fairs in 2017. Keep up thje excellent work!

Rakesh Ram, Amity Global Business School


The ISFA Fairs were great for exposure and getting to know exceptional students

There was a great coverage of schools and the ISFA fairs were full of students. It was great for exposing our university, and getting to know exceptional students, whilst establishing our presence in Africa. The fair was well organised and a big thank you to Irina and the team for the welcoming hospitality. The otrher exhibitors were also lovely to meet, and many great friendships were formed.
