The Grundtvig Institute aims at producing graduates who are fully equipped to live lives useful and satisfactory to themselves, to their families and communities and to the nation.

The Grundtvig Institute (G.I.) was founded in 1984 and later came under the ownership of the Grundtvig Movement of Nigeria (GMN). It is a residential post-secondary educational institute, inspired by our traditional education and the Education-for-Life philosophy of N.F.S. Grundtvig of Denmark (1783-1872).

The objective of the school is unique in that it differs from the bookish educational system in the country which is now producing unemployed, undisciplined and frustrated graduates. The objective of the Grundtvig Institute is to provide “Education for Life” at the post-secondary level.


Positive attitudes, discipline, self-confidence, awareness and initiative for successful living; facilitated through the Institute’s total personality building Awareness.
