The Unity University

Welcome to The Unity

The Unity University is Africa’s pioneer, non-profit, accredited university in Somaliland. Under the PLO Lumumba Foundation, TUU prides itself as being the education revolution dedicated to opening access to higher education globally by assisting qualified high school graduates overcome financial, geographic, political and attendant constraints in accessing higher education..

With UNESCO estimating that 100 million young people will be seeking vacancies in universities by 2025, it strikes rather shockingly that such vacancies and universities don’t exist. Since TUU believes that access to higher education is a basic right which promotes world peace and global economic development, it has undertaken to contribute to bridging this gap.

Admission Open for 2023

The academic programs are organized in a modular semester system schedule. Seven credit modules shall be undertaken per semester as the maximum course load for Bachelor’s degree students. Students take a two-hour block classes for all modules and a one-hour tutorial (Case studies) class per week. Students attend block classes and the regular class daily.
