Africa Hub (Kigali)

Welcome to Coventry University’s Africa Hub.

Opened in 2021, our aim is to establish strategic partnerships with organisations in Sub-Saharan Africa, supporting their global aspirations. If you are a world-leading higher education institution, commercial entity, government body or research institute, we want to hear from you.

Our services

Enterprise and Innovation

As an innovative university, we can facilitate a range of continuous professional development (CPD) courses, commercial research, IP commercialisation and knowledge exchange activities to drive the fusion of academia and industry.

Academic Partnerships

Coventry University operates globally, having already built several successful multi-disciplinary partnerships. With a wealth of experience in teaching and learning, student mobility, research and enterprise development, we are seeking to work with other innovative and enterprising academic institutions who share the same desire to deliver excellence in education.


Our research centres focus on a range of real-world issues. We can support you to establish opportunities for joint PhDs, research collaborations and international conferences by linking Coventry University’s academics with experts from your region.

Education and Student Experience

We can provide you with access to our pool of talented students through the university’s Talent Team, providing you with a supply of skilled students for up to 12 months. We’ll connect you with students who match the needs of your company, whether you are a large enterprise, SME or start-up business.
