ABOUT SUN

The importance of higher education in national development cannot be overemphasized. Nigeria looks to higher education as fundamental vehicle driving both economic and political developments. Cognizant of the fact that tertiary education institutions have great potential as indigenous incubator of national progress and revitalization, Nigeria has devoted substantial economic and human resources to promote university education.

In this context, the mission to establish the Skyline University, Nigeria took concrete form in 1990 when its promoters established the Skyline University College (SUC), at Sharjah, United Arab Emirates. SUC became very famous and the reputation grew exponentially and student enrolment soon increased at an enhanced rate with a large number of international students coming from Nigeria. Thus, in the 28 years of its involvement in private university education in the Middle East, Skyline International Group Limited (SIGL) has spread so widely. This is a testimony that the little spark of 1990 in UAE, has blossomed into a full flame of excellent university educational opportunities for the young Nigerians in particular and the West African sub-region in general.

The major motivation to establish the Skyline University Nigeria (SUN) is to achieve the same mark of academic and all round excellence which has been achieved by SUC in the UAE by providing a total life-changing education at the tertiary level. The aim therefore is to complete the circle of education, which was begun in a humble way in 1990 to educate the young Nigerians as a commitment to exceptional life-long learning.

The university concentrates, deepens and extends the frontiers of knowledge of the students who are to become the catalysts for the development of Nigerian society. This goal whose root was firmly planted over 28 years back has flourished and blossomed into an international institution of higher learning in Kano Nigeria.
