Unleash Your Potential

ALU is pioneering a fresh approach to university education in the 21st century

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.

Mauritius Campus: African Leadership College


ALU’s inaugural campus opened its doors in October 2015, welcoming 180 students to the island. Located on the tropical Indian Ocean island of Mauritius, the African Leadership College (ALC) is the first of 25 ALU campuses that will be spread across the African continent. ALC has partnered with Scottish University, Glasgow Caledonian University (GCU) as its founding academic and accreditation partner
