VICTORIA Falls University of Technology (VFU), which is one of Zambia’s leading private Universities operating in Livingstone, has continued to be one of the most reputable training institutions in the country.
Its reputation comes from the fact it is the only University of Technology in Zambia while it is strategically located a few minutes from the Victoria Falls, which one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World.
Further, its location at the gateway to several Southern African Development Community (SADC) countries namely Zimbabwe, Botswana, Nambia and South Africa makes it attractive to international partners such as universities, investors in technology and international organisations wishing to invest in higher education and technology.
Because of this reputation, the university has already benefited from renowned speakers and visiting professors from all over the world such as the US, Japan, the Netherlands and African countries.
The university also offers the most affordable and industry-tailored education in the country while its fees are competetive.
It has already introduced a one-year scholarship for underprivileged students who would like to study at the institution from all 10 provinces of Zambia.
At degree level, the average fee is K4,000 per term and students who are on a scholarship only pay K2, 000 per term.
Another unique feature about the university is that it is the only institution in Zambia which was founded and is currently being run by a woman Getrude Mwangala Akapelwa-Ehueni.
Mrs Ehueni, who recently won the 2013 Africa’s Most Influential Woman in Government and Education Sector, is the first woman mathematician in Zambia.
She is also former board chairperson for Zambia Information and Communication Technology Authority (ZICTA) and Board Member for ZANACO as well as the owner and chief executive officer for La Résidence Executive Guest House in Livingstone.
Apart from Mrs Ehueni, VFU has employed the most experienced lecturers who are experienced professionals.
