Top 15 Fashion Schools in Africa Banner.

School rankings are a pivotal tool for students when deciding where to pursue a degree. The aim of the ‘CIAFE Top 15 Fashion School’s In Africa List’ is to highlight the excellence of  Fashion Institutions in Africa that are doing notably well and bring awareness on the different course offerings available on the continent. We believe this will have a ripple effect on the fashion institutions across Africa to strive towards excellence. 


The rankings were done by assessing 193 institutions across the subregions of Africa. The CIAFE Advisory Board made up of 17 experts from the fashion industry examined a shortlist of African Fashion Education Institutions on 8 different criterias.


CIAFE’s school ranking is based on the following criteria:


  • Curriculum

  • Accreditation

  • Reputation

  • Influence on continent

  • Alumni
