At IAS-UI, our students pursue postgraduate courses in various disciplines. The students of our Institute run the African Studies Students’ Association (ASSA). ASSA is a vibrant body whose activities bring students together to promote their interests as budding scholars, cultural ambassadors, and responsible members of society. ASSA’s appeal and achievements are such that students from other departments and faculties in the University are always eager to participate in ASSA’s programmes. These programmes and activities help students to strike a good balance between schoolwork and other pursuits, and they cover a broad range, from academic engagements to social interventions, development issues, cultural promotion, and entertainment. In conjunction with IFRA, ASSA organizes the African Village Square and Film Screening every Thursday afternoon, using the medium for consciousness-raising. 

Collectively, ASSA provides a voice for the students of our Institute, serving as a means for them to make inputs into decisions that directly pertain to them. University-wide, ASSA has become a cultural force to be reckoned with as it gives vibrancy and vitality to cultural events on the campus of the University of Ibadan and even beyond. ASSA’s platforms help students of our Institute to discover themselves in the course of their academic pursuit, indeed, developing students’ potentialities in leadership and creative production. ASSA has become a ‘home away from home’ for our students, an association that makes it possible for its members to relax, stay healthy and keep up academically.
