Accessible education for all

Education should be accessible to people of all economic backgrounds. An inclusive university in a diverse world, Acacia University aims to make education accessible to all by giving everyone, regardless of their background or circumstances, the chance to study at higher levels of education.

Upholding the value of equality of educational opportunity, AU has partnered with UniAthena, a UK-based edtech provider with a global reach of learners from diverse backgrounds and communities, to offer several professional development programs and short courses with career, vocational or technical focus for the socially and economically backward student community.

The myriad of short courses enable them to acquire specialized knowledge in a field of their choice. Flexible in nature, the students can access these short online courses for free, and in some cases, they can pursue the courses with meager fees.

STEM Courses

In recent years, there has been a significant increase in the number of students showing interest in STEM courses. One of the reasons is the lack of qualified STEM graduates who can combat the shortfall of the capable workforce.

Every action we do revolves around Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics, which is why students, professionals, entrepreneurs, scientists, and technologists from all over the world have recognized the value of STEM courses.
