The first ever German higher education fair took place in Yaounde from June 5-7, 2014. Approximately 6000 Cameroonian students constitute the single largest group of African students at German universities. A number that has been rising continuously. The German Embassy is interested in supporting this development and opening the academic path in Germany for Cameroonians.

Five German universities, of which some have had intense cooperation with Cameroonian universities for a number of years, presented the academic opportunities in Germany together with the DAAD, the Germany Embassy Yaounde, the Goethe-Institut, the Coordination Office Cameroon/Germany (KBK), the umbrella organization of the German Alumni Association in Cameroon and the Centre for International Migration and Development (CIM).

The fair was aimed primarily at young applicants with an interest in acquiring academic training in Germany. It offered a comprehensive overview of higher and further education at German universities with an array of courses and faculties on display.

Additionally, vocational training providers, associations, institutions and the universities themselves informed participants about a variety of job opportunities in Germany and the necessary requirements to apply for them.

The German Embassy partook in the fair by presenting the process of applying for a student visa for Germany. It provided information about the requirements and documents necessary for a trouble-free and smooth visa application.
