Home / About / Welcome to the University of Kigali (UoK)!


We thank you for choosing University of Kigali as your knowledge partner. We are a fast growing, young and dynamic University established in 2013. We offer a variety of internationally benchmarked undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in Accounting, Economics, Finance, Business Administration, Marketing, Public Administration, Procurement, Law, Education and Information Technology. These programmes are offered through our two campuses based in Kigali and Musanze respectively. I encourage you to visit ‘Academics’ page on our website  for a complete list of academic and professional programmes offered by UoK. Our School of Accountancy has fully trained and qualified professionals to offer tuition for professional courses such as CPA, ACCA, CIFA CIA, IPSAS, ATD and CAT.

Our Centre for Economic Governance and Leadership  offers a wide range of short courses, training workshops and management development programmes to develop the capabilities of Executives, New Managers and Senior Managers to enable them contribute effectively and efficiently for an inclusive and sustainable economy.

Despite our brief existence, we have risen to be amongst the leading institutions of higher learning in Rwanda and the region and acclaimed for our outstanding contribution to teaching, research and service to local, national and international communities. We have about 4000 students in postgraduate and undergraduate programs including  international students.

Our continuous dialogue with stakeholders and the continuous assessment of the teaching and learning process reflects the UoK’s desire to prepare students for the challenges of labor market or self employment. The University of Kigali is committed to meet the enormous expectations of society to nurture professionals and scholars of high calibre, who can offer solutions to a broad range of issues.

Our philosophy is to create industry leaders and entrepreneurs by intensifying our endeavours to mobilize more resources and create conducive ambience for our faculty, students and staff to actualize their potential. We aim to expand our reach to the inaccessible regions through virtual presence and become a centre of excellence. Our growing number of international partners is strategic to achieve the goal of broadening access to higher education and continuously improve the quality of programmes offered. We pursue a multi-stakeholder consultation approach, in which students, teachers and staff, as well as alumni and other stakeholders play a meaningful role.

Our students form the core of our existence as an institution of higher learning. We expect them to be passionate about their dreams and make their family and society proud of their achievements. We are proud of our alumni and their achievements and seek their stronger support in providing quality higher education to ignite young minds and shape the future.
