Our History

The University of Lusaka is a modern private university established under the University Act No. 11 of 1999 repealed as the Higher Education Act No. 4 of 2013. The University commenced its operations in 2007, initially as Institute of Corporate Training and Research (ICTAR) and served as sorrage of the Masters Degree programmes offered by the Copperbelt University.

In 2008, the University of Lusaka introduced its Bachelor’s Degree programmes in partnership with the Copperbelt University and in 2009 began offering its own programmes. Following this auspicious beginning, the University now offers a wide-range of programmes at Bachelor’s, Master’s and Doctoral levels.

Today, the total number of UNILUS students has risen to over 7,000 from 71 students in 2007 when the University opened. The University has grown from strength to strength and now has over 1000 Master’s students and over 60 PhD students from various parts of the region. This is a great achievement for a private University that has only been in existence for less than 10 years.
