Academic Opportunities

The PD Sections aims to strengthen U.S.-Zimbabwe university partnerships, research, and innovation.  Approximately 1300 Zimbabwean students travel to the U.S. each year to take advantage of our undergraduate, graduate, and specialized educational programs.  Our EducationUSA advisors provide valuable information to individuals who have their own or institutional means to study in the United States, and need information on finding an appropriate university, applying for admission, and preparing for student life in America.  The team ensures availability of required standardized examinations for entry into college and graduate programs.
