Saylor Academy is very pleased to announce a new partnership with the Groupe ESTEL- Ecole Supérieure des Métiers du Management et des Langues (Groupe ESTEL), to provide educational and curriculum opportunities for their students. Groupe ESTEL students will be able to expedite completing their degrees by utilizing Saylor Academy’s free university-credit courses to transfer into their degree programs. Groupe ESTEL is Saylor Academy’s first full credit partnership with an international institution of higher education. 

An accredited university in Dakar, Senegal, Groupe ESTEL focuses on business disciplines combined with foreign language learning, preparing students to lead the global workforce. Saylor Academy’s always on, always open courses will allow Groupe ESTEL students even more flexibility as they pursue their studies and develop professional skills.

A. Arona Sy, Director, Groupe ESTEL:

“As part of our international expansion, we are pleased to partner with Saylor Academy. This partnership gives our students the opportunity to access quality courses, recognized by the international academic community.

Such initiatives should be supported and promoted especially on the African continent where higher education is still inaccessible to the majority. In order to build up African human capital, quality and affordable education has become critical. We thank Saylor Academy for their work and support to educate the world!”

About Saylor Academy

Saylor Academy is a nonprofit education initiative committed to removing key barriers to skills and higher education: time, distance and cost.  We eliminate those barriers by offering free, online, university-level courses created by credentialed professors. Also, select Saylor Academy courses are recognized for university credit transfer eligibility by the American Council on Education (ACE), an association of U.S. higher education institutions, and the National College Credit Recommendations Service (NCCRS), an organization based in the New York State Board of Regents.

“Saylor Academy has always served students around the world with our free certificates and we are excited to expand our university credit program with our first international university. We are delighted that Groupe ESTEL, an accredited university in Senegal, has recognized our university-level quality courses to count toward specific degree requirements in their program,” says Jeff Davidson, Executive Director. “Groupe ESTEL’s emphasis on cross-cultural, multilingual, and open learning closely mirrors our mission to bridge barriers keeping students from the higher education they deserve.”
