Rectors' Welcome

Welcome to Kibogora Polytechnic, the newest university-level institution in Rwanda and the first institution to be centred in the Western Province, on the shores of beautiful Lake Kivu. The founder of the new institution is the APMLPE (Association des Parents Methodistes Libres Pour La Promotion d’Education). It represents a unique collaboration between the Free Methodist Church in Rwanda, Kibogora Hospital and local organisations.


We offer vocationally relevant programmes in a wide range of disciplines. Each of these programmes will prepare successful graduates for professional roles in Rwandan society. We will create the employable and enterprising graduates which will transform the Western Province and beyond. But at the same time we aim to give every student a superlative educational experience, using tutors with practical experience of their subject, modern techniques and equipment. Because of our unique contacts with overseas universities a combination of African and Western teachers will deliver the programmes so you can be sure they are at the cutting edge of knowledge. We are committed to building a reputation as the finest private university in Rwanda. You could enjoy our brand new facilities for 2013; we are attracting committed students who want to build a dynamic and lively new institution.

Our programmes are available to either Degree or Diploma level. You can be confident that you can complete your studies here in Kibogora whatever level you wish to study.

Our aim is to help you achieve your potential. If you have any queries or wish to apply for a programme please contact
