Life at AKU is not all about the classroom

Here's what our students have to say about their experience of being
as leaders and posi​tive contributors to society.

“The Dental Hygiene Programme is where we gain knowledge and understanding of what exactly it entails to be a dental hygienist. There's so much more to it than scaling, like identifying abnormalities in the oral cavity. And I can say, we are being educated."

Rose Wairimu, Class of 2020
