Formed after extensive consultations among Oxford academics and African colleagues, the Africa Oxford Initiative fosters the establishment of equitable and sustainable collaborations between African Academics and the University of Oxford.

At a time when the African continent is poised for decades of strong economic and demographic growth we see huge potential both for African universities and for The University of Oxford in increased partnership. The African Union’s vision 2063 envisages that all African countries will move to middle income status powered by knowledge-based economies. African university graduates and African universities will play a central role. AfOx supports and facilitates partnerships in priority areas including education and research collaboration, scholarships and grants, and academic leadership.
