With over a billion plus population, Africa happens to be the youngest continent on the planet. Despite the burgeoning Indo-African Bilateral relationships, a meagre 5800 African students opt for Higher Education in Indian Institutions. This is owing to a host of issues & lack of a concerted & streamlined eduAFRICA Connect. The eduAFRICA Connect Session at eduGLOBAL 2018 shall present an opportunity to interface with the key African & Indian Stakeholders to find out ways and means to increase this footprint of African Students in India. Representatives from African Union Embassies, Association of African Students in India, Indo-African Chamber of Commerce & Industry, Ministry of Home Affairs, Commerce & Foreign Affairs would be present in this first of its kind engagement. The occasion would also see the launch of eduAFRICA Connect Programme which shall streamline the entire process of Student Recruitment from Africa.
