Postgraduate education involves learning and studying for academic or professional degrees, academic or professional certificates, academic or professional diplomas, or other qualifications for which a first or bachelor’s degree or Higher Diploma generally is required, and it is normally considered to be part of higher education.

Postgraduate degree encompasses a range of qualifications that require an undergraduate degree to be considered for entry, these include courses at Post Graduate Diploma level all the way to a PhD.

Postgraduate degrees are taken for a number of different reasons, such as to move into academia and research or to specialize in a career path or change track entirely.

Rationale for FLED International University 

The future of higher is education is bright, but presents a different paradigm from what has always been. Part of our mission is to offer a unique, dynamic, affordable, quality higher education to the non-traditional students (who must work, attend family issues, study what he/she really needs for professional advancement, and make impact in their world).

Evidence is overwhelming that Sub-Saharan Africa has suffered prolonged under-development due to low quality public leadership.  We believe that the quest for prosperity, peace, security and sustainable development in Africa rests on readiness to train, nurture and deploy quality leaders to take charge of public resources for public interest.

The need or the market for Post-Graduate Leadership Education in Sub-Saharan Africa is huge. The establishment of FiU is a focused at offering multi-disciplinary advanced professional leadership in order to produce leaders and technocrats who are far-sighted, values-driven, pragmatic, ethical and tolerant of human diversities and able to harness Africa’s human and material diversity for sustainable development.

FiU is located in Abuja, Nigeria and its establishment aligns with the vision of the National Universities Commission for the setting up of specialized private Universities, particularly to help meet the huge demand for postgraduate education in Nigeria.

It is against this background that FLED International University is being established. 

FLED International University is established  based on the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights; per article 26

FiU believes that Higher Education is a Human Right. The University seeks to implement a paradigm shift in educational models for its academic programs that allows it to integrate conventional academic curriculum into evolving leadership development curriculums. This helps students self-empowerment, decentralization of the learning process, and personalized open curriculum designs.


FLED International University – FiU – is an institution of multidisciplinary learning and research, graduating highly skillful and pragmatic business, political, and educational leaders for Africa’s economic and socio-political transformation.

The University is a hybrid institution – operating on-site and online – leveraging on the power of digital technology to deliver high quality Post-graduate programs in the areas of Humanities; Social Science including Media/Journalism, Education, Entrepreneurship, Business, ICT and Digital Technology, Politics & Governance, and allied fields.


A world-class post-graduate institution graduating transformed leaders for Africa’s political and socio-economic transformations.


A leading Post-Graduate University in Sub-Saharan Africa that nurtures holistically transformed  leaders by combining online learning with face-to-face instruction.

Financial Target for the Project

To actualize the University project, FLED Group has launched a US$9.4 million (N4.5b) Institutional Development Fund – IDF-2025. We plan to raise this amount between 2022 and 2025. The money will be raised through Partnership supports, Impact Investments and Internally generated sources.
