The university’s aim is to be a leading University that develops highly enterprising graduates prepared and dedicated to building a more just and sustainable society locally, nationally and globally.

Rwanda is one of the smallest countries in Africa, located just a few degrees south to the equator. Kigali is the largest city and the capital of the country, Rwanda’s economic, cultural and transport hub since it became capital at independence in 1962. Spanning several ridges and valleys, Kigali, with its hillsides, flowering trees, winding boulevards and bustling streets, is arguably one of the most attractive capital cities in Africa, as well as easily one of the cleanest and safest.
