Announcing ALU’s new campus in Kigali, Rwanda

Our Locations


ALU’s fresh approach to 21st-century education can now be experienced in two amazing locations: the fast-growing innovation hub of Kigali, Rwanda, and the island paradise of Mauritius. Both campuses offer ALU’s unique learning model alongside undergraduate degree programmes while delivering an immersive and transformative student experience through the ALU Alive programme. The only question you have to answer is, which life-changing experience best suits you?

Our Approach


At ALU, we resist the pressure to conduct tertiary education the way it has always been done. We challenge existing beliefs so that we only keep what works, and reimagine the rest. Our mission is to create a more prosperous and peaceful Africa by developing the next generation of ethical and entrepreneurial African leaders. We prepare students for a successful and meaningful life and career in the 21st century – with a shared vision for a better Africa.
