Edith Cowan University (ECU) is strengthening its presence in Kenya as it seeks to have more Kenyans study at the institution based in Western Australia.

ECU Vice Chancellor Steve Chapman said Kenya is ECU’s most important market in Africa and is thus among the regional hubs the university is targeting to expand its reach.

“We are strongly focused on expanding our presence in the global education hubs of the Asia-Pacific and the MENA Region (Middle East and Africa),” Prof Chapman said at a dinner hosted by ECU for its alumni in Kenya.

He added that ECU has a 20-year legacy in Kenya and the region.
