Job Ad & Profile Description

Position : Assistant Registrar


From the start, we’ve been on a mission to bring the “university of the future” to the world — a place where students declare missions not majors, where real-world experience takes precedence over theoretical classroom lectures, and where learning how to learn has replaced learning facts and figures. Today, ALU is on its way to helping unleash the human potential of a new generation of ethical and entrepreneurial leaders — and in the process, unlock a new era of prosperity and opportunity for Africa and beyond unlike the world has ever seen.

Our mission is not going unnoticed. CNN described ALU — which has campuses in Mauritius and Rwanda —  as “The Harvard of Africa;” Fast Company ranked ALU one of the 50 most innovative organisations in the world and the most innovative endeavour in Africa; and The New York Times recognised ALU as one of the eight places in the world “where history is being made.” 


In creating a world class education experience for our students and administrative experience for our staff, the Registrar Office at ALU plays a key role in ensuring our student data is centralised, accurate, trustworthy and compliant. The Assistant Registrar is the gatekeeper of all academic data, and will uphold academic integrity.  


The Assistant Registrar will fundamentally be responsible for:

Academic Process Management: 

  • Responsible for maintaining student records at the campus level. This includes but not limited to; processing student matriculation, transfers, withdrawals and leave of absence. 
  • Process new student records, including setting up cumulative folder, and entering student data into appropriate databases such as Salesforce.
  • Coordinating class schedules and resolving scheduling conflicts; running student evaluations of teaching

Managing Student Data Records: 

  • Build and maintain academic data systems that enable ALU to collect data on students’ academics that is reliable and updated regularly and in a timely manner; data on students’ academics including their choice of majors, grades, attendance, academic standing and graduation dates

Coordinator and Integrator: 

  • Work with and implement systems to coordinate reporting of student data between Admissions, Program Leads, Academic Director, Head and other internal and external stakeholders such as regulatory and accrediting bodies

Academic Policy Ambassador: 

  • Working with various pieces of data requires utmost confidentiality and integrity. The Assistant Registrar will need to have an awareness of internal data protection, attendance and campus policies, actively refer to them and reference them where needed
