Université de Lubumbashi

The University of Lubumbashi, in acronym called UNILU, is one of the great universities of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Located in the so-called copper province of Katanga in the south of the country, it has the advantage of being located in a naturally rich environment. Thus benefiting from a particular generosity of nature; the fauna, flora, soil and subsoil make this province a geological scandal and a site of scientific research par excellence.

By its philosophical orientation, the dynamism of the academic authority, the dedication of the student community, the University of Lubumbashi is strongly solicited both by foreign students from Africa, for complete training, and by European students, as interns. and researchers. In addition to foreigners from Africa and Europe, one finds at the University of Lubumbashi a great mix of more than 450 national tribes, forming a cosmopolitan atmosphere of researchers of all categories called here the “KASAPARDS”.
