From the Desk of the President:

West African Union University

We welcome you to West African Union University (WAUU) –a bilingual university with excellent academic pursuit and a clear vision of meeting the 21st century labour market needs. While most of us conclude there are no jobs for fresh graduates, research findings show otherwise. As evidenced in a recent study, 4 out of 10 employers in the world cannot find qualified employee to fill entry level positions in their organizations. Also findings from an ongoing educational sector analysis in Nigeria confirm that our educational “system emphasizes theoretical knowledge at the expense of technical, vocational, and entrepreneurial education”.

WAUU was established to bridge the gap between the fresh graduate and the labour market. The calling among other things is to produce graduates technically and conceptually sound to meet the 21st century market needs at an affordable cost.

Our students are recognized and accepted by the following top professional bodies:

  • Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria

  • Medical Laboratory Science Council of Nigeria

  • Pharmaceutical Council of Nigeria


And so on.

Join the winning team for destiny actualization! Bravo!

Our Mission

To realize the goals, we first developed a curriculum that blends conceptual with technical programmes aimed at impacting technical, innovative and creative skills on students; we’ve put in place technically skilled lecturers, partnering firms, and amiable administrators to augment the traditional conceptual learning culture. We have all our courses accredited by the Government of Benin Republic. We have also been cleared by relevant ministries and bodies in Nigeria and our Nigerian graduates are serving in the NYSC scheme.

Our mission is to produce highly competent and resourceful graduates with high moral values, providing opportunities to all students irrespective of race, tribe, religion or political inclination through modern academic programmes

Our vision is to be an international university of iconic reckoning, develop an exciting and supportive learning environment that transforms students and inspires them to make a real difference in the society.
