Private HE crucial for Africa’s development, conference hears – June, 01 2023
Private higher education institutions have a vital role to play in the development of Africa but, in order to be sustainable, they need to be successful, innovative and impactful.

This was a core message conveyed at the third annual academic summit of Honoris United Universities held in Cape Town, South Africa from 23-25 May. The group, established in 2017, is a pan-African network of private higher education institutions present in 10 African countries – from Tunisia and Morocco in the north and South Africa and Botswana in the south, to Nigeria in the west and Mauritius in the east.

The group is now eyeing Egypt, Kenya and Ghana as new destinations to grow its existing network of 15 institutions and 82,000 students across 70 campuses and learning centres in 32 cities on the continent.
