Undergraduate Programs



The features are similar to the traditional type of learning except that you do not have to attend classes regularly where you see your lacturer. Otherwise you still have to have your textbooks, take and submit assignments, write your exams etc. The good thing is that you do most of these in the comfort of your home, office or on the go. You can travel anywhere and still be okay with your studies so long as you have your computer and internet access to connect online.

Entry requirements differ for each course just as is the case in a conventional university. For a degree program, five credits in West African School Certificate or its approved equivalent with credit passes in at least five subjects is the general requirement. Read the additional requirements for the course you wish to study.

If there is any need for all students to meet online at any particular time, students will be notified but generally the distance learning program is very flexible such that lecture notes, assignment, quizzes etc are uploaded by teachers and then students in their own time visit the site to download these materials for their use.

Distance learning institutions was originally meant for adults who could not get formal education due to the fact that they have to earn a living and they have families to cater for. So with distance learning, they could combine all of these obligations and still get education. However that has changed as young persons straight from secondary school can apply provided that are qualified.

That depends on the program but generally it is 5 and 6 years for first degree.
