How it Works

  • First Complete the Application Form

    This is the part of the registration process and is not a commitment from your side.

    After you submit the application form, a Student Adviser will contact you and discuss:

    • Your qualifications for the course
    • The details about the degree
    • The eligibility criteria
    • If you want to study only online or at the Unicaf University Campus in Malawi
    • The documentation that you will need to provide for your administration
    • The level of scholarship you are eligible for
    • Possible payment plan that suits your budget
  • Your Papers get Reviewed

    Once you have agreed with the Student Adviser that you would like to proceed and submitted all the paperwork, your application will be reviewed by the Admissions Officer to determine if your academic qualifications meet the minimum criteria and the Scholarship Committee.

  • Receive Final Approval & Start Studying

    Finally, you will be contacted with the decision of the Admissions Officer and the Scholarship Committee. Students that study online, can also take advantage of our Learning Centres that are located at several locations worldwide.

    For the ones that commence their studies, the UNICAF team will continue to be at your side every step of the way.
