Teaching in Africa

Africa is one of the most diverse and complex continents in the world. A rich, often troubled, political history, young population, and fast-growing economy bring opportunities as well as challenges. 

Universities play a key role in the intellectual life of Africa. They have a huge impact on the social, economic, and cultural well-being of the nations. 

We offer a useful overview of the African Higher Education system and major institutions as well as news and updates for the Higher Education community in Africa. We also help connect and secure a teaching position for US graduate students who are interested to teach in African higher education institutions.

We facilitate interchange, contact, and cooperation among universities and other institutions of higher education in Africa with the US institutions.

​We also help facilitate collaboration between the US and African higher education institutions in curriculum development, post-graduate training, research, quality assurance, recognition of qualifications, the determination of equivalence of degrees, and other matters of special policy or practical interest to African higher education.

We plan to work with over 35 African institutions of higher education and will launch a new partnership agreement with the Association of African Universities (AAU) to build a strong and strategic partnership with the African ministry of education, universities, and colleges in the area of curriculum development, research, and teaching.  


African Universities naturally look to their own nationals first to meet their recruitment needs, however, academics and researchers with specialist skills are welcomed at many universities on contract terms or a visiting basis. A key element of the African governments' economic growth plans are to recruit international expertise for scarce, critical, and special skills in key areas and many African Universities are truly international, with both staff and students from around the world.

We are recruiting passionate and experienced educators who have graduate and terminal degrees to teach in Niger. Prospective Adjunct Faculty will be able to teach remotely from their respective countries. Click here to apply
