About Kepler

Kepler launched in Rwanda in 2013 and aspires to establish a network of universities across the continent providing affordable higher education. We provide students in East Africa with access to accredited American degrees by partnering with Southern New Hampshire University’s innovative competency-based online degree program. This online work is paired with in-person coaching, support services and career preparation so graduates are able to meet the labor needs in their developing economies.

Applicable Academics

Skills in English, technology, business, and critical thinking help our graduates navigate the challenges of 21st century employment in the rapidly changing environment of East Africa.

US Degree from SNHU

At Kepler, you receive support to complete both an Associate of Arts and a Bachelor's degree from Southern New Hampshire University’s online competency-based program, which is fully accredited in the United States.

Employment Skills

All of Kepler’s instruction is designed to prepare you to be ready for work immediately after graduation. Professional Competency courses begin in Week 1. Career coaching happens throughout your studies.

Personalized Learning

From a competency-based degree that you complete at your own pace to advanced short courses that you can choose based on interest, Kepler is customizable so that you can meet your learning goals.
