Kenya to serve as East African gateway for quality education

The Kenyan Commission for University Education (CUE) has granted The University of Northampton, UK, authority to collaborate with Edulink International College Nairobi (EICN). This, says the Commission, will allow Kenya to serve as East Africa’s gateway for quality education through Edulink International College Nairobi and the University of Northampton.

Under the agreement, EICN will now offer a range of University of Northampton Business programmes at Foundation and Undergraduate levels beginning September 2016 at its Nairobi Campus.

Following the deal, Edulink International College will help Kenyan students achieve their educational goals by offering quality UK Degrees from The University of Northampton at its Nairobi Campus. Students and their families will also reap further benefits by studying in Nairobi by eliminating the need for overseas travel and greatly reduced financial and psychological costs that overseas education incurs.

“Edulink International College offers much more than just a quality UK degree in Kenya. It has now brought its UK partner’s unique approach to social development and global standard of producing exceptionally employable graduates to East African community, via its Nairobi Campus,” the group said in a statement released this morning.

Following the CUE approval, Edulink CEO, Dr. Misho Ravic expressed appreciation to the Commission for its recognition of the Edulink’s efforts to support the attainment of Kenya Vision 2030 development strategy by investing in country’s education sector. Kenya’s Vision 2030 economic development programme aims to increase prosperity of all Kenyans by achieving an average Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth rate of 10 per cent per annum in the next 15 years. Competitive, educated workforce supports this goal, through innovation, filling existing and creating new job opportunities and business ventures.

“Collaboration with strong academic partners is the key to Edulink success. Our mission is to deliver world-class higher education to developing communities around the world. We make this possible by making access to quality University qualifications open to all and enabling our students to obtain an internationally recognized qualification from a quality UK university at home.” Dr. Ravic added.

Edulink’s future strategy includes worldwide expansion of its existing educational network. Kenya is the latest project in this plan whose aim is to advance educational levels of East African Community (EAC) and make the local workforce regionally and globally competitive in line with current industry demands.

Edulink International College was established in 2014 by Edulink Consultants, an international business with head office based in Dubai. The Company owns and manages several Higher Education Institutes on three continents,along with a range of health and dental clinics and a specialised hospital in Dubai.

The University of Northampton (UN) is a British university located in Central England, and is ranked among the top 50 UK universities (Guardian University League Tables 2015).
