The University of Abidjan (UNIABIDJAN)

We are a dual language private university (Arrêté N° 00207/MESRS/DGESIP/Kae) owned by professionals in practice, academic and employees. We provide opportunity for learners to study and earn their degrees in English or French. Our programmes and trainings are therefore fully delivered either in English or French, depending on the language preference of the learner. However, learners have the opportunity of taking some of the courses under a programme in the second language (French or English) where available. We provide a platform for learners and professionals to acquire knowledge with top-level lecturers and facilitators in a small class environment.

Our Goal

To provide a platform that gives people access to education of international standard and all-round development for the purpose of actualizing lifetime learning and aspirations.
