NDU became an associated member of the Agence Universitaire de la Francophonie (AUF), on December 8, 2016.
AUF is an international association of higher education institutions and scientific research centers from around the world that use the French language. The organization has a network of 62 offices, branches and digital campuses in 40 countries.
To become a member of the AUF, candidates have to satisfy a number of criteria regarding the quality of teaching, the degrees offered and the qualifications of faculty members, to name a few.
NDU’s AUF membership has enabled our faculty members and students to benefit from and participate in research ventures with other AUF member institutions. In addition, faculty, students and staff have many opportunities offered to them in terms of conference participation, and enrollment in seminars and training sessions.
