About University

Amoud University is a non-governmental, national University and open to all aspiring candidates who fulfill the admission requirements without discrimination based on sex, ethnic, origin, creed, color or religion.

The idea of establishing Amoud University was conceived by four intellectuals working in the Gulf in 1994 and was formally proposed in a workshop held in Borama on August 6, 1996. The workshop agreed to the proposal and adopted a resolution for the establishment of the University by 1997.

Amoud University started its first admission examination on September 1997 and selected 66 students to undergo a nine-month intensive English course. The University commenced its undergraduate program on 4 November 1998 and admitted the first freshman class, setting a landmark in the history of higher education in this country.
