“The ABE Initiative offers opportunities for young and eligible African men and women to study for a graduate degree at Japanese universities as international students. At the 5th Tokyo International Conference on African Development (TICAD V) it was recognized that there was a need for the development of a robust healthcare workforce in both the private and public sectors of Africa. At the same time, participants expressed a desire to cultivate a strong network between Japan and Africa to give African students the opportunity to learn about the efficiency of Japanese technologies and systems of enterprise.”

  • The ABE Initiative is open to all African students who apply for only MTM and MSc courses.
