This market is the largest country in Sub-Saharan Africa, both in terms of the economy and the population. One-fifth of Nigeria’s population is between the ages of 15 and 24, creating significant demand for higher education opportunities. As the demand cannot be met domestically, students are searching for international opportunities. Education fairs will be held in both Abuja and Lagos, Nigeria.
Ghana has experienced a decade of sustained economic growth, and its education expenditure relative to income is double the average for the African continent. These factors, coupled with the fact that English is the primary language of instruction, sets Ghana as the second largest sender of students to the United States. U.S. schools will participate in an education fair in Accra, in addition briefings, meetings, and networking events.
