The International SEPT Program supports the African Centre for Career Enhancement & Skills Support (ACCESS)

The ACCESS project at the University of Leipzig seeks to address the paradox of a growing and improved formal education system in Africa which does not improve access to the labour market, but rather contributes to increasing unemployment rates among university graduates. ACCESS therefore aims to improve access to the labour market in African countries where graduate unemployment is usually very high – over 30 percent in some instances. Within the framework of ACCESS, new interdisciplinary concepts would be developed and piloted to contribute to increasing the employability of students and graduates of African universities. A consortium of six universities from Benin, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, Rwanda and Tunisia, led by the University of Leipzig, Germany, will undertake the project.

ACCESS is funded by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) under the "Higher Education Excellence in Development Cooperation - exceed" programme. With “exceed”, DAAD supports the establishment of international university networks on three continents with funds from the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).
