Thomas Adewumi University (TAU) is very pleased to announce a new partnership with Saylor Academy, based in the United States, to provide flexible and on-demand learning opportunities for TAU students. Saylor Academy courses will help build “soft skills” that are critical for the workforce of the future.  As part of TAU’s mission to support student success throughout their careers, students will be able to earn Skill Development certificates from Saylor Academy’s free online professional development courses.

Impact of the TAU/Saylor Academy Partnership

Thomas Adewumi University and Saylor Academy both recognize that students, such as TAU students, will need lifelong learning opportunities to adapt to rapidly changing economies. The Saylor Academy/Thomas Adewumi University partnership provides key skills needed to start or boost a career, and complements TAU’s already excellent degree programs.

Quote from Saylor Academy

Saylor Academy is honored to start this initiative with Thomas Adewumi University,” says Jeff Davidson, Saylor Academy’s Executive Director. “This collaboration, which is our first in the nation of Nigeria, is innovative by incorporating digital skill development into TAU’s existing degree programs. The results will be even more well-rounded students ready for the future of work.”

About Thomas Adewumi University 

The ethos of Thomas Adewumi University is excellence and the institution aims to become a major key player in the delivery of university education of the highest quality in Nigeria, as well as to produce graduates that would benefit themselves and be the human capital for the rapid and much needed socio-economic development of the country. The attainment of this goal is a major challenge and a serious commitment, which the University expects to achieve through careful planning and adequate deployment of human and material resources.

About Saylor Academy

Saylor Academy is a nonprofit initiative committed to making education accessible and affordable to all who need it.  We are doing so by creating free online courses, created by credentialed professors with teaching experience as well as industry-leading credentials. 

Our courses are available for anyone to take at their own pace, and earn certificates or university credits to help them graduate or gain employment faster, and improve their and their families’ futures. We do not charge institutions to partner with us, and are always looking for like-minded organizations to expand our mission further.
