In this article we provide a brief theoretical overview of cosmopolitan education with reference to the seminal thoughts of Seyla Benhabib (2006), Martha Nussbaum (1996) and Amy Gutmann (1996). We then examine how such a form of education can be taught in universities, before moving on to an exploration of some of the implications of cosmopolitanism for universities in Africa.
