UNSW into Africa 

UNSW is engaging with Africa. There is a new student exchange programme with the University of Cape Town, funded by ex Westpac boss Gail Kelly. Arts and engineering students did a field-course on conflict resolution last month, through Gulu University in Uganda. And Babere Chacha is at Kensington for six months, “laying the groundwork for a collegiate relationship” with his Laikipia University in Kenya.

Extending academic links makes scholarly sense now and will make commercial sense later –  when it comes to international students coming to study here one day Africa will be the new Asia.
