Call for Application into 2016/2017 ODL Academic year
The Lilongwe University of Agriculture and Natural Resources (LUANAR) will from June this year start offering some of its programmes through the Open and Distance Learning (ODL) mode. This is a response to increased demand for higher education in Malawi, in line with the University’s strategic objective which is to widen access to its programmes.
Through ODL, LUANAR is proving chances to the working class and secondary school leavers who would otherwise not find space or time for full time conventional education an opportunity to combine work, business, home life and study without excluding the prospect of resuming advanced university level studies.
Studying through ODL is advantageous in that it reduces costs associated with access resulting from averted costs associated with teaching space, accommodation and non-academic functions. It also increases enrollment and efficient use of personnel remotely.
Other advantages of ODL include multiple entries and exits where students work at their own pace while maintaining university standards; no limitations in terms of age, gender, physical ability and status of aspiring students. You work and earn a living while you study and earn your desired degree. It is learning on the go!
Therefore LUANAR is pleased to invite applicants From Malawi and Other Countries to purse Degree Programmes through ODL delivery mode in the following areas:
- Bachelor of Science in Agribusiness Management
- Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Economics
- Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Extension
- Bachelor of Science in Agricultural Innovations
