The Riara University was born out of a sincere desire to provide a holistic approach in higher education. It is a logical continuation of our commitment, dating back to 1974, to ensure education and development of the whole child, learner and person. Ours is a concept that goes beyond the classroom, syllabus-based learning, and reaches out to provide stimulation and motivation for self-development and capacity for life-long education.The process of education from kindergarten through primary and secondary and now university flows like that of the perennial Riara River: forever challenging, forever nourishing, forever fulfilling.
