Much as most Universities in Africa depend on theoretical approach to learning. African Rural University considers practicals are key to our learning whereby the curriculum is designed to cater for 60% theory and 40% practicals.
During the third year, students learn Appropriate technologies as a course unit which is basically practicals in preparation for field work.
