We offer foundation programmes, 16 undergraduate degrees and four postgraduate programmes across three faculties: The faculty of commerce and law, the faculty of humanities and the faculty of applied sciences.
Individualised and personalised
Our classes are smaller, which means we can spend more time focusing on you and giving you exactly what you need to learn. On top of that we also offer a range of support programmes for students to ensure their academic success
Qualified and experienced staff
We value both academic qualification and real world experience, and our academic staff are no exception. Our lecturers are all highly qualified and have plenty of academic and real world experience. We won’t just hand you an encyclopaedia and talk at you during lectures, we offer practical assignments, field trips and guest speakers.
Blended approach to learning
We prefer a more modern approach to learning, which is why we use a combination of technology enhanced learning aids, like Tablets, and traditional learning methods as well as practical application, to prepare you for the technology-driven, fast-changing world of work.
Financing and payments
We’re here to help you get an education and get ready for the real world. We know higher education is an investment, that’s why we offer ways to navigate this through extended payment options, early-bird discounts and the Pearson scholarship, which rewards academic excellence.
