ISFA is now in its 11th year!

The event was originally organised in Nairobi in 2011, but has now grown to include Mombasa in Kenya and both Dar es Salaam and Arusha in Tanzania and Ethiopia making it the leading student recruitment event in East Africa.

Every year we work closely with local and international schools to make sure that exhibitors get the opportunity to sit down and speak with high caliber students looking to study abroad. The events usually begin at 10:00 and exhibitors have the opportunity to meet with students who come in school groups throughout the day.

Main areas of interest are undergraduate courses and postgraduate courses with a visible increase in interest for professional qualifications. Many foreign universities attract Kenyan and Tanzanian students for access and foundation courses in marketing, business, management and IT.

The main subject areas are: business and finance, medicine and related sciences, IT, engineering, hotel management, humanities, law, MBA, and distant learning.

You can read more about the East African student market on our Market Overview page.
