Edusko, a leading edtech that connects parents and students with good and affordable schools within and outside Africa, has announced its launch in China to assist Africans interested in studying in the Asian country.
The launch in China was necessitated because the most populous country in the world was fast becoming a study destination for Africans, especially those who are unable to secure admissions in Europe and America but still desire quality education outside the shore of Africa.
The startup has partnered CUAP Education Consultants, a leading Chinese university agent, in its bid to connect African students with Chinese institutions.
“We are extremely delighted to partner with Edusko. We’ve been following up with the progress of the start-up and it’s incredible to know how many Africans are currently using Edusko to find good and affordable schools in Africa and beyond,” said Salim Abubarka, the CEO of CUAP Education Consultant.
In the coming months, Edusko will partner more leading foreign university agents to ensure seamless experience for parents and students seeking foreign admission.
Launched in 2015, Edusko helps parents and students find and choose good schools amidst thousands jostling for their attention.
In less than one year of launch, the start-up has helped over 30,000 parents made informed decisions and had referred over 500 students to good and affordable schools in Nigeria and beyond.
Already, leading schools in Africa and beyond have been signed up on Edusko. Schools ranging from Crèche, Nursery and Primary, Secondary, Tertiary to Special schools in Nigeria, Ghana, South Africa, UK, Canada, United States and recently China are freely available on the platform for school finders.
“Our mission is to connect African parents and students with good and affordable schools across the globe with ease. We’ve found out that China presents an opportunity for this. You’ll be amazed at how good and affordable these schools are,” Edusko’s founder, Jide Ayegbusi said in a statement.
