American University of Nigeria was created in response to the demand for high-quality, American-style higher education in West Africa. Each year, thousands of West African families send their sons and daughters to universities in the United States. Many of these students would prefer to study here, in Nigeria, if a comparable education were available. Now these students do have a new option: AUN.
The mission of AUN is to offer an education that is in every way the equal of what a student would experience at the best universities in the United States. The majority of the distinguished faculty are American; the campus facilities are world class–superior even to those found at most American campuses. The academic programs are built on the American model and are consistent in every way with US accreditation standards.
The University was created in partnership with the American University in Washington, D.C., an institution with an international reputation for excellence.
Courses at the American University of Nigeria, Yola range from Arts and Sciences to Business and Information Technology, and semesters actually follow the Fall, Spring and Summer ideas of the American system. A big kudos: a lot of interesting CV’s in their faculty list – at least we hope students are getting some quality education here. At least the ‘strike sessions’
Would this be the first of its kind locally amongst universities, but this university has an online library catalogue.
This is not to kill the joy here, but I was kinda wondering about when we would be able to have The Nigerian University of America……
