Africa Rising is an online course that we created to help our students become familiar with the opportunities and challenges facing the African continent. ALU is developing young leaders to transform the continent and to do that they need to know what they’re up against so they can spearhead innovative solutions that will create change for to some of the most pressing problems of today.
The course is composed of 4 modules that cover topics such as Leadership in Africa, Education in Africa and African Urbanisation. Each module consists of a curation of articles and videos which you will complete to allow you to respond to the short writing and reflection prompts. The course also offers an online discussion forum where you can discuss and debate current issues and topics with other applicants from across the continent and around the world.
