Originally founded in 1983 on 53 acres of land in Karen, a suburb on the outskirts of Nairobi, Africa International University (AIU) began as Nairobi Evangelical School of Theology (NEGST), with the main aim of educating Christ-centered leaders for the transformation of God's people and the world through innovative programmes, research, and community engagement. In 2011, AIU received a university charter from the government of Kenya and since then we have continued to develop our undergraduate programmes such as those in Development Studies, Counselling Psychology, Business, and Information Technology. No matter what course you select, our education perspective embraces disciplined critical thinking, and allows for the nurturing of relationships, creativity and innovation. We're committed to offering education with a passion for God, trust, integrity, service, and excellence.
Through rigorous theoretical learning and relevant work-related projects, our dynamic lecturers strive to provide students with a welcoming, supportive and favourable environment in which you can flourish as you equip yourself with the thinking skills, analytical framework, and interpersonal communication skills required for the destiny God has planned for you. Our commitment to quality teaching and innovative practice, combined with our history and reputation, makes us a great choice for any student looking to build a thriving, successful and meaningful career in Kenya or abroad.
