Created as Virtual University of Uganda (VUU) back in 2011, NEXUS INTERNATIONAL UNIVERSITY (NIU) is Africa’s Premier Virtual University created in 2011, accredited by the Ugandan National Council for Higher Education (NCHE). All its degree, diploma, and professional certification courses are delivered exclusively online and via live virtual lectures by very qualified and experience lecturer of different nationalities teaching from various locations around the world.

Originally thought of with Uganda in mind, the success of the university and the patronage it got beyond Uganda led to management deciding on the change of name to Nexus International University to reflect its more international outlook, and fits better it’s mission to “deliver Africa’s education future” leveraging technology. For an extended pilot period, the university offered only postgraduate courses, and was able to serve students from 17 different countries. Hundreds of students cherish and have taken advantage of the flexibility and freedom NIU’s virtual and online model offers them.
