The Catholic University of Cameroon, Bamenda, also known as through its acronym CATUC, or Latin name Universitas Catholica Cameruniae, is a private university located in Big Mankon, Bamenda, North West Region, Cameroon. After expressing dissatisfaction with the Catholic Church’s educational influence, limited to only the primary and secondary school, the church set up a Think Tank in October 2006 to consider the establishment of a Catholic University. After long deliberation by Catholics and academic experts from November 2008 to February 2009, the Bishops of the Bamenda Ecclesiastical Province submitted a request to the Minister of Higher Education seeking the creation of the University. On 6 July 2009, the Minister of Higher Education granted permission to create the Catholic University of Cameroon. It became fully operational in October 2011.

The Catholic University of Cameroon, Bamenda, is well known for being one of Cameroon’s top religious universities. From its inception, the University has worked hard to distinguish itself in the areas of academic and professional quality through the provision of top-quality teaching & learning, the enhancement of student & faculty research, well-structured internships & industrial placements, and in the moulding of Cameroonians of character, supported by a Catholic Christian ethos and an Anglo-Saxon tradition of discipline, integrity and hard work. To that effect, CATUC aims at making its way to the top of university rankings nationally and internationally.

The Catholic University of Cameroon, Bamenda, possesses several academic and non-academic facilities, aimed at encouraging its students’ social wellbeing and academic pursuits.

ABOUT THE CITY OF BAMENDA
Bamenda, also known as Abakwa and Mankon Town, is the capital of the Northwest Region of Cameroon. Bamenda is partitioned into two distinct sections. The first is the northern part, known as “Up Station” and the second is the low-lying and dominant south, with villages like Abakwa, Mankon, Nkwen, Chomba, Mbatu and Nsongwa. The city was colonised by Germany from 1884, till 1916. After the First World War, Cameroon became a colony administered by Great Britain and France. In 1919, the administration of the Northwest Region and thus the city of Bamenda became solely British. Britain, in the course of its administration, decided to administer the city as part of Nigeria. This British administration lasted till 1961, when the region was once again joined to French Cameroon.
Bamenda features a tropical savanna climate characterised by raining and dry seasons. The city’s inhabitants are predominantly Grassfields peoples with a culture that consists of one hundred chiefdoms each ruled by a divine king (Fon). Bamenda people are recognised by their accent, dialect, attire and cuisine. The city of Bamenda has an economy that depends mainly on agriculture, processing industries, tourism and transportation.

The cost of living in a city like Bamenda is relatively cheap – compared to other top cities like Yaoundé and Douala. Most restaurants are relatively inexpensive, with regular meals ranging from 500 to 1,500 FCFA. The city has road links to Yaoundé, Bafoussam and Douala, which explains why it hosts numerous travelling agencies that work day and night transporting inhabitants within and out of the city. It equally holds the Bamenda Airport, located in the Bafut subdivision that services flights in and out of the city. Notwithstanding, the primary transportation means in the town are bikes and taxis, with 250 FCFA as average cost.

The city of Bamenda provides a healthcare system that consists of biomedical treatment, traditional and Islamic medicines. These combinations are available to everyone and are considered based on belief, cost, proximity, and the advice of kin and neighbours. Home teaching is a very vibrant sector for most university students seeking part-time employment in Bamenda. The city has several art centres where different groups produce pottery, textiles, and sculptures that are used as everyday household objects. It hosts several NGO’s, especially those with a focus on social problems such as AIDS and ethnic development associations. Given the insecurity in the country in the past three years, stringent measures have been put in place to wane the insecurity and keep safe inhabitants. These facilities serve the broader community and may be of great use to those wishing to study in CATUC.
