About the webinar:

Despite government centralization, Cameroon’s education system is divided into two separate systems, Francophone and Anglophone. These systems differ not only in the language of instruction, but also in their qualifications framework and curricula. Initiatives such as Cameroon Vision 2035 seek to, among other goals, revitalize the education system by equipping graduates with both French and English fluency and boosting technical and vocational training. At the same time, higher education has expanded rapidly since the start of the twenty-first century—enrollment increased fivefold between 2000 and 2015. In response to growing demand, public institutions are multiplying and expanding, and the number of private institutions is increasing steadily. Join WES specialists Eleonora Fallwickl and Ryan McNally for an overview and analysis of the key elements of Cameroon’s education system.

Gain insights into:

  • The structure of Cameroon's education system, and current trends
  • Cameroon's benchmark credentials and how to evaluate them
  • Key institutions, academic documentation, and grading scales
