African Leadership University(ALU) Selection Criteria
What are we looking for in an ALU applicant?
ALU has a diverse student community and that doesn’t only mean that they come from many different countries. It also means that our students come from diverse cultures, traditions, socio-economic backgrounds with diverse passions and interests. Some of our students are musicians and athletes while others are artists, mathematicians and computer geeks. What binds them all is their desire to grow and make an impact on the world around them. When we review applications we don’t look for only one thing – we consider each application with its own unique story and context.
We strongly believe that Africa is transformed when people from all backgrounds and walks of life come together and collaborate to solve tough problems. That’s why ALU is not just for Africans. We welcome young people from around the world who are excited about ALU’s learning philosophy and want to set a solid foundation for their future and their careers.
