Our proven pedagogic model
AIMS tuition, study materials, and housing are fully funded through a generous scholarship. Its residential nature allows more contact time between lecturers and students than is available in a typical university setting.
Students typically study three subjects for three weeks each during the skills phase and two subjects for three weeks each during the review phase. Additional tutorials and special classes are held in the evenings when students also usually complete their assignments. AIMS Cameroon is a bilingual institute (English and French), and we have students, tutors, and lecturers from various nationalities. All lectures are in English only. Language training is offered in English and French.
Students and tutors of AIMS Cameroon reside on campus at Crystal Gardens. They occupy single rooms with a communal living space and laundry facilities for tutors and lecturers.
At AIMS Cameroon, students also get the opportunity to build relationships with one another over play, enabling them to strengthen their thinking and appreciation for a difference in thought processes.
All students are required to volunteer for at least 20 hours during the academic year. This program will strengthen their leadership skills as well as their commitment to invest in Africa.
