It is the home to some of the world’s leading educational institutions, researchers and academics, including 15 Nobel Prize winners.

Australian Trade Commissioner for West Africa, Gordon Chakaodza added, “The exhibition will be an excellent opportunity to learn about the benefits of studying in Australia, including obtaining first-hand information about current student visa regulations.”
