The Lesotho Ambassador praised APU and said "APU is a very international university. It's quite an achievement in just 8 years. I hope that more students from Africa can study at APU in the future". To which President CASSIM replied "We currently have 66 students from Africa and we hope to have students from Lesotho in the future. Let's work towards a mutually beneficial partnership in the future" and described some of the available scholarships.
