Since its creation in 2013, AIMS Cameroon has trained a total of 342 students (122 women); 311 students under the Structured Master’s Degree program and 31 under the Co-operative Master’s Degree program.
Students benefit from the experience of renowned visiting lecturers who teach for three weeks each. Capacity building is provided by tutors who are always available on campus to ensure a 24-hour learning environment.
Fifty-Eight (58) new students, 45% of whom are women, gained admission to AIMS Cameroon to take a 10-month Master’s Degree course in Mathematical Sciences during the 2021-2022 academic year.
The 2021-2022 Cohort comprises 39 Cameroonians and 19 international students from Chad, the Democratic Republic of Congo, Egypt, Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, Burkina Faso, Sudan, and Zambia.
The 58 new students have been enrolled in the three new streams of the Structured Master’s Degree Program. While 22 students will study Fundamental Science, 17 will study Data Science, and 21 students chose the Climate Science stream.
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 two subjects for three weeks each, with each day comprising morning lectures followed by problem-solving and computing sessions each afternoon. 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 Garden. They occupy single rooms with a communal living space and laundry facilities.
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.
