This International Education Fair is held every March at the Sarit Expo Centre, Nairobi, Kenya and will celebrate its 14th Edition 2012. This is the leading Education, Careers and Training fair in Eastern Africa, which brings together consumers, providers and stakeholders of the education sector.
This fair features among others local and international colleges and universities, pre-universities institutions, local and international schools, allied businesses and services. It continues to attract and benefit students, school leavers, parents, career training and counselling teachers, stakeholders in education, diplomats and the general public immensely.
A 2011 study by Synovate reported that 57 percent of students prefer foreign universities over local ones due to a perception of high quality standards, prestige, and exposure to life overseas. The Kenyan government continues to work to make education in Kenya better. Although Kenya has its own universities, some parents choose to send their children to different countries. Kenyan universities are difficult to get accepted to as there is such a high demand for higher education and not nearly enough room in the universities. The majority of Kenyan students studying abroad are pursuing undergraduate courses.
The student fair is supported by Prof. Sam Ongeri from the Minister for Education in Kenya.
