What is a Webinar Series?

The Study in Europe Webinar Series consists of several webinars, that inform about study and funding opportunities in a specific Erasmus+ country. Each webinar is an interactive presentation with opportunities for visitors to participate (Q&A sessions). A webinar series is a series of such webinars (e.g. 4-5 presentations of different countries per day over 2-3 days). The lecture language is English.

 

African students are high in mobility

More than half a million African students are studying abroad. This means that one out of ten mobile students worldwide comes from Africa. After a slight increase in previous years, this figure has remained constant in 2016 and 17. Still, at 3.5 percent the mobility rate of African students is significantly higher than the global average (2.3 percent). Especially in Sub-Saharan Africa, where the rate is about three times higher than the global average.

Almost 30 percent of the African mobile students come from northern Africa (Maghreb and Egypt), and if we add East African countries (Kenya, Ethopia, Uganda, Rwanda, Tanzania) to these, more than one third of the mobile African students come from these two regions in Africa.

Geographically, 170,432 African students came to the 28 European Union countries (49.1%), followed by African countries other than their own (69,226 or 19.9%); North America (43,852 or 12.6%); Middle East (22,179 or 6.4%); Asia (18,527 or 5.3%); the rest of Europe (9,224 or 2.7%); Oceania (7,386 or 2.1%); and South and Central America (6,496 or 1.9%).

 

Europe - a popular study destination for students from Northern and East Africa

More than one third of the Egyptian mobile students (ca. 11,000) are studying in Erasmus+ countries. Amongst the top ten countries there are France, Germany, the UK, Italy, Turkey, Austria and Greece.

From the Maghreb (without Libya) about 77,000 of the mobile students are studying in Europe. The rate of those who go to a European country is with at least one third very high (Tunisia 69%, Morocco 76% and Algeria 84%). Besides the UK, France, Germany, Italy and Spain, Romania, Belgium and Hungary are also amongst the most popular countries.

Almost one third of the 14,000 Kenyan students studying abroad choose Europe as their study destination. Still North America, Australia and South Africa are the number one study destinations. But amongst the top ten you can also find Germany, Finland, Turkey Italy and France.
