Aga Khan University is a unique hybrid: an institution of academic excellence that is also an agent for social development. A leading source of medical, nursing and teacher education, research and public service in the developing world, the University prepares men and women to lead change in their societies and to thrive in the global economy. AKU’s faculty, students and graduates go where the need is greatest, working in informal urban settlements, remote villages and regions where conflict or neglect has decimated basic services. Indeed, in many cases, such communities are their homes.Based on the principles of impact, quality, relevance and access, the University has campuses and programmes in Afghanistan, East Africa, Pakistan, and the United Kingdom. Its facilities include teaching hospitals, Nursing Schools, Medical Colleges, Institutes for Educational Development, an Examination Board, and an Institute for the Study of Muslim Civilizations.At AKU, students flourish in a welcoming, supportive environment that embraces pluralism, demands excellence and encourages leadership, teamwork, intellectual curiosity, debate and direct engagement with real-world problems. Admission to the University is based on merit, without regard to financial need.
