ALU is not for everyone.

It’s for the creator, the dreamer,
the leader.

Students choose ALU because they want hands-on real world experience led by some of the world’s most innovative educators. They want a place that does not limit their potential with old rules but believes in their capacity to solve Africa’s largest challenges in new ways. They want their time at a university to lead them to a job or even to launch a company. They want to be part of a global network committed to their success.

Simply put, they want a university that will prepare them to be the leaders who will transform Africa.
