More than 60% of the African population falls under the age bracket of 25 and below. Yet enrolments in tertiary education vary from 2% to 20% (depending on whether you are in Tanzania or Nigeria). The top reasons are lack of access to education, limited availability of seats, and the inability to afford it.
There are efforts on multiple levels to improve higher education and employability with different avenues such as graduate courses, distance learning, executive learning, and the branch campuses of international universities. This webinar discusses how education has evolved and how institutes have leveraged technology.
Key Discussion Points:
- Key challenges in enrolments
- Evolution and the competitive landscape of Education with alternate education
- Understanding admissions and the efforts at increasing the enrolments
- Role of technology in the admissions process
- Future of enrolments: Seamless student and sales experience
