What is the University of the Nations?

The University of the Nations, or UofN, is a university founded on biblical principles that equips students to serve in all spheres of society and in all nations. To achieve this, we teach students to think biblically, discern spiritually and apply scriptural truth to every area of life. The UofN has registered courses in 97 languages, across 142 nations in 600 locations each year. The UofN is the training arm of YWAM. YWAM missionaries can gain further training with the UofN in order to better serve the communities they are trying to reach.
