Abstract
This paper explores the theme of the 2011 African University Day. The theme “Harmonisation of Curricula and Qualifications in Higher Education in Africa: Challenges and Prospects” is in response to the vision of an integrated Africa espoused by the African Union Commission (AUC) on Higher Education. The African Union (AU) in collaboration with the Association of African Universities (AAU) has embarked on developing a strategy for harmonization of Higher Education Programmes in Africa in order to foster cooperation in information exchange, harmonization of curricula and policies, and attainment of comparability of qualifications in order to facilitate mobility of Africans across African countries for employment and further study.
