JWL students work on their assignments in the Arrupe Learning Centre computer lab
Since 2010, Jesuit Worldwide Learning has served more than 1,960 Diploma and CSLT students. Our students come from all communities at these locations: from the Congo, Rwanda, Somalia, Sudan, Uganda, Burundi, Iraq, Syria, and Ethiopia. In addition, several are drawn from the host community – the Turkana in Kenya as well as the Malawian and Jordanian communities whose own access to higher education is often similarly limited.
JWL does not impose restrictions on the basis of age, race, religion or ethnicity and is actively seeking to recruit women within these communities. Many of our students practise religions other than Christianity. For most, English is not their first language (in many cases it is their fourth or fifth) and this is their first contact with on-line learning, computers and the world of academia.
