Kigali Independent University ULK is destined to stand out as a remarkable university for excellence at the heart of Africa with highly motivated students and high qualified personnel endowed with elevated ethical values.

Kigali Independent University ULK is a Higher Learning Institution, created on 15th March 1996 and accredited by the Convention no 001/98 of 02/02/1998 with the Government of the Republic Of Rwanda. ULK received its own status by the ministerial order no 001/17 of June 07th, 2002.

The mission of ULK is: to educate, teach, conduct research and serve the community. The fundamental mission of ULK is to provide the students with a training which will enable them to become actors and organizers of a complete development of the nation.

Despite ULK’s legal status of "private institution", meaning that functions using its own means, ULK takes patience and allows gradual payments from students who don’t have the capacity to pay the fees at once.  Furthermore, RWIGAMBA BALINDA’s FOUNDATION assists students deprived of financial capacities with a grant (a loan) without any interest. Since its creation in 2001 until the academic year 2013-2014, the Foundation has granted bursaries to 2,878 students of ULK (Kigali and Gisenyi Campuses) to help them complete their university studies.
