African Partner Universities

Come work in Africa!

KIU summer school

Here we list some information about our partner Universities in Africa that have agreed to be part of our academic exchange scheme. Many universities in Africa are very keen to expand their research programmes by hosting foreign researchers with specific expertise in their fields. This program is open across academic fields – whether you are a neuroscientist or a sociologist, get in touch and find out if we can find a placement for you!

Placements are available for different periods of time, so could be an interesting thing to do as a gap year after your PhD, during a period between postdoc contracts, or as a sabbatical activity. You can find out more about the academic exchange program here.

Currently we have partner universities in Uganda, Nigeria and Ethiopia, and we are always interested in new collaborations, so hope to expand the available locations soon. For more information on the individual institutions, check out the countries pages:




If you have any questions about the program, do feel free to contact us at any time.
