Universities Eligible

Zain Africa Challenge is open to all universities in Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Sierra Leone, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia meeting the following criteria:

  1. All public universities
  2. All private universities in possession of a Charter or an Act of Parliament
  3. All private universities in possession of a Certificate of Provisional Registration or a Provisional License or a Letter of Interim Authority
  4. Enrollment of 250 students (or more)
  5. Third year of intake (or more)

Based on the above criteria, we solicited a list of eligible universities from the Ministries of Education and the IUCEA.

For the 2009 season, universities in Nigeria were selected because of the need to limit the competing universities to 16. The field of universities selected by the National Universities Commission (NUC) are inclusive and representative of: regional distribution, institutional academic stature, public and private universities, religiously affiliated and non-sectarian universities

In future seasons it is anticipated that all universities in Nigeria meeting the programme participation criteria will be invited to enroll and will compete at Regional Qualifying Tournaments.

The resulting list of eligible universities is:
