Free Computer Lessons Offered in April from Unicaf University
Unicaf University Malawi continued its offer of free computer training sessions in April, targeting secondary school graduates, who finished their MSCE in the academic years 2017 and 2018. Aiming to impart basic knowledge and skills regarding the use of computers and the Internet, the free training sessions from April 23rd to 25th were attended by around 30 secondary school graduates, from both private and government schools. Participants were taught the basic theory of computer use through audiovisual presentations and were than able to practice what they had learned in the modern computer lab of Unicaf University’s state-of-the-art campus in Lilongwe.
The students were welcomed by the Vice Chancellor of Unicaf University Malawi, Professor Kuthemba Mwale and were trained by the University’s IT team. At the end of the final session they received their certificates and then posed outside the main campus entrance for photographs. The students also had the opportunity to explore the range of degree programmes on offer from Unicaf University Malawi, through online delivery or on campus study, as well as the generous UNICAF Scholarships, which are available to all applicants to the University’s degree programmes.
Since August 2018, when free computer training was introduced by Unicaf University Malawi as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility programme, more than 700 secondary school graduates have learned how to use a computer and how to access the Internet, making it easier for them to search and apply for jobs, apply to universities and seek new knowledge online. They can create their personal email address, join online groups and societies, and even study through online delivery.
The next free computer training sessions will be on May 28th, 29th and 30th. For information and to reserve your place, please call 01755 333, or visit the UUM campus at Unit 1, Shoppers Mall, Area 4, Plot 67, Lilongwe.
