ALU is a world-class tertiary institution offering undergraduate programs that will develop the future leaders of Africa. At ALU, you get the chance to meet and learn with bright, dynamic young leaders from all over the world.
We believe our students should be ready for life after graduation, and a key part of that is having experience working in real-world settings. Through our strong partnerships with some of the top companies in the world, students are guaranteed an internship each year and gain the work experience they need to get a job at graduation. We have partnered with a number of the world best organizations to give internships, placements and projects to our students (helping them build the real-world work experience they need). These companies have also committed to directly invest in our students’ futures by sponsoring many of them – our first class will be fully sponsored by our corporate partners!
