Africa’s first and largest pan-African network of private higher education institutions, Honoris United Universities, has announced its expansion into West Africa by partnering with Nile University of Nigeria.

In a press statement, Honoris said with its collaboration with Nile University, students will have access to diverse experiences across the entire network, including 21st century physical and digital learning environments using state-of-the-art professional technologies.

In addition, they will benefit from Honoris’ regional and international network of partners, providing opportunities for student and faculty exchanges and research programs.

These experiences will support the growth of highly competitive graduates as well as contribute to the development efforts of Nigerian communities throughout the country.

With the largest population and economy in Africa, Nigeria is poised to lead a new generation of African leaders and professionals.

As high-quality education in public and private institutions increases in demand, Honoris is partnering with Nile University of Nigeria to support access, quality, and outcomes while extending its world-class African human talent mandates.

Commenting, CEO of Honoris United Universities, Mr Luis Lopez, said, “As we welcome Nile University of Nigeria to the Honoris family of higher education institutions, we are undertaking an important step forward in our pan-African goal of widening access to quality higher education for young people in the continent.

“Moreover, the high standards and the accomplishments of Nile University of Nigeria add significant collaborative intelligence and pedagogical capabilities to our network.

“I look forward to the contributions Honoris United Universities and Nile University of Nigeria will bring to our communities throughout Nigeria.”

The addition of Nile University to the Honoris network is a major milestone in its pan-African expansion. With a footprint that extends from Casablanca to Cape Town, and from Abuja to Tunis, the Honoris network now consists of 11 institutions in 10 countries and 32 cities, amassing significant expertise in contact, distance and online education.
