About Our University

We are one of the largest, most diverse universities in the Benin with over 1,000 students in Benin, and a further 12,000 studying across 7 countries for West African University.

WAUBenin University prides itself on producing well-rounded, creative graduates who are responsible, productive citizens and future leaders.

You’ve probably heard your teachers and older friends or family tell you that university is not like school. That’s because at university, you are expected to make decisions on your own. These range from selecting modules (subject choices) to compiling your personal timetable (if that is applicable to your course), and deciding whether to engage in extra-curricular activities such as sports or joining a student society.
