Studying in Africa

Study opportunities

In recent years, Africa has become the focus of international students. It is no longer just African scientists and ethnologists who go to Africa to get to know the local languages ​​and cultures better. Since international companies are increasingly investing in African locations, more and more students in economic subjects are moving to the continent. Experts with knowledge of Africa are also in demand in the areas of tourism, art and culture.

University landscape in Africa

The study landscape in Africa is very different. Most students are drawn to South Africa, according to Countryaah. The relatively wealthy country has invested a lot of money in the expansion and reform of its higher education system in recent decades. This is reflected in international rankings, according to which the best universities on the continent are located in South Africa.

A large number of state and private universities offer a large selection of modern, practice-oriented courses. Another plus for international students: the study system corresponds to the Anglo-American model. The universities offer Bachelor, Master and PhD courses as well as postgraduate courses. The language of instruction is English. Further reasons for studying in South Africa are the well-developed infrastructure and the relatively low cost of living.

But other regions of Africa are also becoming increasingly interesting for international students. Economically emerging countries such as Ghana and Tanzania have invested large sums in their education system in recent years. Here, too, the official study language is English and the study systems correspond to the Bachelor-Master system. There are also collaborations with international institutions such as the private Norwegian organization Kulturstudier, which offers semester programs on topics such as environmental management and development aid. A unique opportunity to study during a semester abroad to immerse yourself in the fascinating world of Africa and at the same time to tackle the social and economic problems discussed in the course of study.

Those who are more interested in Arabic culture and language are in good hands in North African countries such as Egypt or Morocco. However, it should be noted that, as in almost all African countries, there are large quality differences between the individual universities. The Bachelor-Master system is not yet available everywhere. It is therefore important to inform yourself in advance of studying in Africa about the various universities and courses in the country of your choice.
