Our main campus is located in the city of Addis-Ababa, Ethiopia. The other four locations we currently operate in are Hawasa Ziway, Nasaret, Dire-Dawa and here in Hargeisa, Somaliland. In all of our campuses across Ethiopia and our most recently launched campus in Hargeisa, we boast over 5000 students and alumni from a broad range courses including Public Health, Clinical Nursing, Midwifery, Pharmacy, Medical Laboratory, ICT and as of recently Business. Although our campus in Hargeisa focuses on three faculties, Public Health, Midwifery & Clinical Nursing, we aim to expand the number of courses on offer in the near future.

Our campus in Hargeisa offers students access to a vast majority of books in the library as well as eBooks for our students to complete their research with and widen their knowledge.
