Nature of the programme

The programme is an online programme composed of 20 modules that may be taken on a full-time basis or a part-time basis, depending on the circumstances and needs of the student. Each module lasts seven weeks and the material is available online 24 hours per day, seven days per week during that period. The student may opt to supplement the online programme during this period with face-to-face tutorials in a blended approach.

During the taught modules students interact virtually with their tutor and fellow class students. The number of students taking any one module is limited to 30, thus encouraging personalised interaction and sharing of knowledge and experiences among students from a diverse background.

The module material and e-library access is available 24 hours a day and 7 days a week for the duration of the modules through a purpose-designed Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). Through the VLE, in addition to their module material, students are able to gain instant access to thousands of the latest versions of text-books and journals from Unicaf University’s e-library to support their work. The recommended textbooks and the entire e-library are directly available to the student from their VLE platform at the click of a button. Through the online library help desk, students are able to request for further reading materials that they may need.
