ALU Fellowship Programme

African Leadership University is building the “University of the Future” by leveraging world class pedagogy, advanced education technology, linkages to employers, and a focus on skills development. Our first campus is up and running with 300 students on the beautiful island of Mauritius. Our second campus will open in Rwanda in May 2017, and from there we plan to scale across Africa.


If you’re like most people we meet, the theory you learned throughout your educational journey probably hasn’t empowered you with the skills you need in the real world. You’ve probably asked yourself what was useful, and what could have better prepared you for the world of work.

You don’t have all the answers yet, but you have some ideas you’d like to try out. The ALU Fellowship is the first step to answering those questions and getting the skills you need to accelerate your career and help you get to the next level.


The ALU Fellowship programme has been designed to empower recent graduates and young professionals just like you, with the skills you need to be an employable, high performing individual, in whatever role or field you choose. There are 7 meta skills we have identified as the best combination for creating rock stars, these are: Leading self, Engaging others, Entrepreneurial thinking, Managing complex tasks, Communicating for impact, Quantitative reasoning and most importantly, Critical thinking. The ALU fellowship will be a stepping stone to launch you into your professional career as a strong, resourceful leader.


ALU is a fast-paced start-up, building 25 brand new universities all over the African continent. We are radically different to traditional academic bureaucracies. We approach education from first principles, empower individuals to design, test, and implement creative new ideas, and work closely together to craft transformative learning experiences. We are deeply passionate about our students and excited by the challenge of building something entirely new.

You don’t need to be a subject matter expert to be a rockstar in your career, all you need is the skills for success that you can learn through the ALU Fellowship. Our one non-negotiable requirement is: determination. You have to be passionate about bringing out the best version of yourself and determined to launch a successful career. Other requirements:

Bachelor's degree
Fluency in English

In some cases, it might help to have had prior internship experience.
