About Njala University

Njala University (or simply Njala, as it is fondly called) has had a rich history since its establishment in 1964 as a university college based on the model of the American Land Grant University. Since then it has metamorphosed into one of the leading universities in the country, preparing undergraduate and postgraduate students for careers in a wide variety of specializations including Education, Agricultural Research and Extension, Agricultural Engineering, Environmental and Community Health Sciences, Social Sciences and Law, Natural Resources Management and in Information Technology, among others. Njala University is a multi-disciplinary University with three campuses - the Njala campus in the Moyamba District, the Bo campus in the Bo District and the newly established Bonthe campus in the Bonthe District. We also operate a location in Freetown.

Njala University students come from across Sierra Leone, Africa and throughout the world, representing diverse perspectives, experiences, backgrounds and cultures.
