Sub-Saharan Africa

The University of Oxford’s students and academics have been active in African studies for several centuries. Today, Oxford is a leading centre for the study of Africa, addressing challenges facing the continent from across disciplines. Scholars of the African continent can draw upon first-rate collections of manuscripts and books in the Bodleian Library and artefacts of all kinds in the Pitt Rivers Museum to support their studies.

The University’s presence in Africa is broad: Oxford alumni can be found throughout the continent, as can Oxford University Press. OUP has publishing branches in Kenya, Tanzania, and Southern Africa, and offices or agents in Algeria, Botswana, Ethiopia, Ghana, Libya, Malawi, Morocco, Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Uganda, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. It is also deep: the 500+ staff at the Oxford-KEMRI-Wellcome Trust Research Programme at Nairobi and Kilifi, Kenya – part of the Oxford Centre for Tropical Medicine – have been conducting cutting edge research into malaria and other tropical diseases since 1989.
