Worldview Education Fair is dedicated to helping institutions recruit prospective international students from Africa, and is open to all institutions worldwide, helping you meet and recruit a wide pool of quality potential students.
Most fairs and exhibitions usually focus only on recruiters from a specific country, thereby attracting a limited pool of students with predetermined interests in the specified study destination. The Worldview Education Fair brings institutions from all around the world to one place; giving students more opportunities and greater choices, thereby attracting a larger, more diverse pool of students. For recruiters, this exhibition provides an opportunity to improve their reach and brand awareness; marketing to a larger number of students and alongside well-known institutions.
The Worldview Education Fair 2019 will for the first-time cover Nairobi; and we are excited to add Kenya to our fair location. We anticipate a large pool of students from across Nairobi will attend and meet with recruiters from across the world at the one-day event; thereby giving the students several options to match their budget, location and course requirements. Students are encouraged to come with all the necessary documentation in order to allow them to make immediate applications to institutions.

Kenya is the 27th most populated country in the World, with 47 semiautonomous counties governed by elected governors. It has the largest economy in East and Central Africa region. It has a prosperous and large service industry as a country and arguably has the most successive Tourism economy in African. Kenya also enjoys great success through international trade and exports, especially in the Agricultural sector, for products such as tea, coffee and flowers.
Kenya has a young population, with 73% of residents aged below 30 years because of rapid population growth from 2.9 million to 40 million inhabitants over the last century; the public and private universities in Kenya are unable to cope with the population growth in the relevant age bracket and the with expectations for better quality in the standard of education delivered by most Kenyan institutions. The universities are highly commercialized institutions and are not quite delivering value for money and most qualified students are looking further afield for their educational needs.
Traditionally, the Kenyan education system was such that students who complete high school can join a polytechnic or other technical college instead of proceeding directly to the university and the higher diploma was accepted by many employers in place of a bachelor's degree. The stakes are much higher in recent times and the thirst for quality higher education is rife in Kenyan. There is therefore a change in attitude and expectation which means that students, parents and employers alike are clamouring for employable graduates instead of "half-baked" graduates who struggle to fit in the modern workplace. This has led to a lot of Kenyans seeking to study abroad.
Nairobi is the capital and the largest city of Kenya and it is also the major regional commercial hub in Kenya and the entire Eastern and Central African Region.
Nairobi is currently undergoing a construction boom with major real estate projects and skyscrapers are coming up across the city. It is a rich city with African Headquarters Offices for various global brands and companies. Nairobi has the highest level of literacy, 87.1% in Kenya, compared to North Eastern Province where it can be as low as 8%.
