Caleb’s students and staff come from every background imaginable. There are around 1,000 students from over various part of the country at Caleb, studying here as undergraduates and postgraduates. Their amazing range of stories and interests helps make Caleb one of the most exciting, serene, and conducive learning environments anywhere as well as one with extraordinary resources to offer its students.
There is fact that Caleb needs to make more rapid progress in diversifying its undergraduate student body. Diversity is important as a social good in its own right, and it is manifestly in Caleb’s self-interest – for the University to continue to thrive, we need to recruit the best people from all backgrounds. Greater diversity will strengthen the University’s intellectual vitality.
We want to attract potential from wherever it is found, and to be a magnet for talent regionally, nationally and internationally.
We know that some of the most talented students in schools in Nigeria think of Caleb as out of reach, and many people have an inaccurate view of who studies here, what it costs, and what it is like. Outdated stereotypes can put off candidates from choosing a university they would enjoy and which would give them fantastic opportunities for the future. If great candidates don’t apply, we’re missing out, and we think they’re missing out too.
We’ve been making enormous efforts to explain Caleb to those who may not have thought it was for them, to show what we offer, and to encourage high-achieving students to apply.
We are also reviewing further changes to our outreach programmes, admissions processes and financial support packages to ensure that any student who has the talent and commitment to succeed as an undergraduate at Caleb has the opportunity to do just that.
