Intra – Africa Academic Mobility Scheme


AMAS is a project destined to enhance exchange of knowledge to

improve quality of learning, research and public service in Africa.

The overall objective of the Intra-Africa Academic Mobility programme is to promote

sustainable development and ultimately contribute to poverty reduction by increasing the

availability of trained and qualified high-level professional manpower in Africa.

The Mission

Academic mobility for students and staff in our project is destined to enhance exchange of knowledge and experiences, which can go a long way in improving quality and outcomes of teaching, learning, research and public service for Africa.


Given the present advances in communication, globalization and the speed of knowledge creation, mobility of the academia through AMAS, will be instrumental in creating the stage for contextual and evidence-based development for Africa with effective knowledge exchange between five universities in four distinct regions of the continent.


The participating African universities have a lot they can share through intra-Africa Academic Mobility to enhance quality outcomes in teaching, learning, research and services for the benefit of other universities on the exchange programme.
