Edulink International College Nairobi campus has announced that it will give Kenyan and East African student’s easy and local access to quality UK education in partnership with the University of Northampton.
Kenya’s Commission for University Education (CUE) has already granted The University of Northampton, UK, authority to collaborate with Edulink International College Nairobi (EICN).
The EICN will now offer a range of University of Northampton Business programmes at Foundation and Undergraduate levels beginning September 2016 at its Nairobi Campus.
The 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 reduce financial and psychological costs that overseas education attracts.
Edulink International College offers much more than just a quality UK degree in Kenya and It has now brought its UK partner’s unique approach to social development and global standard of producing exceptionally employable graduates to the East African Community, via its Nairobi Campus.
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 the country’s education sector.
Kenya Vision 2030 economic development programme aims to increase prosperity of all Kenyans by achieving an average Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth rate of 10 percent 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.
