The mission to establish Skyline University Nigeria took concrete form in 1990 when Skyline University College was established by the proprietor, at Sharjah, United Arab Emirates. The fame of this University College grew exponentially and students’ enrolment soon increased at an increasing rate with a large number of international students coming from Nigeria. Thus, in the 30 years of its involvement in the private university education business in the Middle East, Skyline Investments Limited has spread so widely. This is a testimony that the little spark of 1990 in the UAE, has blossomed into a full flame of excellent university educational opportunities for the young Nigerians in particular and the West African sub-region in general.
The major motivation to establish Skyline University Nigeria is to achieve the same mark of academic and all-around excellence that Skyline University College (SUC) has achieved within 3 decades of her existence in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) by providing a total life-changing education at the tertiary level. The aim, therefore, is to complete the circle of education, which began humbly in 1990 to educate the young Nigerians as a commitment to exceptional life-long learning.
The University concentrates, deepens and extends the frontiers of knowledge of the students who are to become the catalysts for the development of Nigerian society. This goal whose root was firmly planted over 30 years back, has flourished and blossomed into an international institution of higher learning in Kano State, Nigeria.
As a distinct world-class private university, Skyline University Nigeria (SUN) offers courses in both Arts and Sciences, through the Schools of Art, Management and Social Sciences (SAMSS), School of Science and Information Technology (SSIT) and the School of Basic Medical Sciences (SBMS). The University also caters for the industry’s need for Professional Development through its Centre for Continuing Learning (CCL) that is impacting positively through its services and quality short courses.
The word ‘Skyline’ means the boundary between the earth and sky otherwise referred to as the apparent horizon. It is the line along which the surface of the earth and the sky appear to meet the horizon. It also connotes the shapes made by buildings and mountains when you see them against the sky.
Skyline University, Nigeria (SUN) is, therefore, a new horizon that has been opened to recognize and address the needs of the Nigerian industry and meet business requirements by developing human capital equipped with knowledge, skills, and values essential for good performance. As a new horizon in university education delivery, teaching pedagogy at SUN will be based on a new approach of integrating knowledge with professional inputs from industry and orienting the students with qualitative theoretical knowledge that enables them to use in practical situations.
