Frequently Asked Questions

What is the distance learning program like?

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.

What are the entry requirements to pursue a course by distance learning?

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.
