Message from the Vice Chancellor

Africa Renewal University is a Christian institution of higher learning where we equip Christian leaders for the transformation of society.
Africa Renewal University (AfRU) is licensed by the Government of Uganda through Uganda National Council of Higher Education. The University is existed to train leaders for the transformation of church and society. AfRU is located in a beautiful and green environment in Buloba (20 kilometres from Kampala) on Mityana Road.

Though situated in Uganda, the AfRU’s family comprises of different nationalities. The staff and students of the University come from many countries, including Kenya, South Sudan, Sudan, Rwanda, Burundi, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ghana, Nigeria, Eritrea, USA, UK and Australia. The diverse cultures on campus have enhanced students and staff in their cross-cultural engagements.

The University offers value-based education in all its programmes. It trains students in class through lecturers, and outside class through community engagement programmes. The University is also equipped with a good library (and e-library) that contains relevant books, journals and other online materials for teaching and research. All programmes offered are accredited by the NCHE.

I encourage parents, churches, organizations and communities in Uganda, Africa and beyond to send their sons and daughters, and employees to be trained at Africa Renewal University. At AfRU, we not only focus on skills, but also morality. Our alumni have been transforming their organisations and communities because they have been trained to do so. So, be part of this noble journey.

Welcome to AfRU!
