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?
