University of Yaoundé
|The University of Yaounde|
|Yaounde, Centre, Cameroon|
It was built with the help of France and opened in 1962 as the Federal University of Yaoundé, dropping the "Federal" in 1972 when the country was reorganized.
In 1993 following a university reform the University of Yaounde was split into two (Université de Yaoundé I and Université de Yaoundé II) following the university branch-model pioneered by the University of Paris.
The university was selected as the Central Africa node for the post-graduate Pan-African University, with an institute to study social and human sciences and governance. The institute was scheduled to open in September 2011.
