Personal Statements are exactly what they state they are, Personal. But in as much as they are unique they are aimed at serving a common purpose, to convince the selection committee panel that you deserve to be considered for the scholarship. In other words, there are some common ways in which you are expected to ‘package’ your uniqueness.   The list below is not exhaustive, but touches on some key issues that you may need to consider It is a serious document; give it the seriousness it deserves. A Personal Statement is not a high school composition about ‘Myself’. It is…


So you’re studying an MBA with a UNICAF Scholarship.  You’re learning all the theory, everything that makes up the meat and potatoes of business.  But what about the practice?  Don’t you need to know the practicalities of business?  We say yes!  Theory will only get you so far.  So how do you solve this problem?  Simple…put yourself out there!  What do we mean?  Go and find local businesses, speak to the owners, learn the reality of things and blend it with knowledge. Ask questions, offer help,…


Every student needs access to office suite software right? This software can often cost an arm and a leg in licensing fees.  So what do you do? You’re not in a position to pay out the extortionate amounts wanted by most popular software but you’re in dire need of a word processor or presentation application.  Simple. Use one of the many free online resources!  Free resources we hear you asking? Yes! Absolutely, 100%, no strings attached, free! The most popular (and the best in our opinion)…


Why do you go to school? Why do you choose to further your education? What’s the reason? More importantly what’s the point? To expand your knowledge base, extend and transform your perceptions! Studying is a process by which you grow, learn and expand your mind. The point of study is to become a better person than you are, a person that knows and respects their own limitations and embraces their strengths. This brings us to the matter of ego. We all know how embarrassing it is to admit you don’t understand something. We all know how much it hurts to…


There’s one thing that all students overlook. One thing that is essential to their successful study and of course their health and well-being. DIET! It’s like they say, you are what you eat. boFood is the body’s petrol; depriving your body of food is like running a car on empty, and what happens when you do that? The car CHOKES! But it’s not just any food. Do you think eating a box of chocolates is the same as eating some nutritious fruit? NO! The body needs healthy, nutritious food that can nourish mind, body and spirit. As a general…


You know what’s important?  What’s overlooked but is really an essential part of successful study?  Exercise!  How much exercise so you get daily? Be honest!

This ensures the brain is in proper working order that in turn results in highly elevated levels of…

Ok, so we all know how difficult it is to get organised, often it’s downright impossible but it needs to be done. Different people have different systems but we can assure you that every single one of your methods inevitably fails to remain organised. What do you do? Split all your files and folders into sections regarding modules? Or have a different file for each lecturer? How about a general file where everything you’ll need at some point but don’t know when goes in? All these methods, in our eyes, are good but not great. You want to be great?…


Beatrice Tancho is a phenomenon for us here at Unicaf; with a 3.10 GPA studying an online MBA it’s safe to say Miss Tancho is a top student. Beatrice was initially very scared as she had very little working knowledge of the Internet and had never studied without a lecturer on hand. Nevertheless, Beatrice overcame her fears as well as any obstacles she might have faced and is currently thriving in her studies. She is so happy with her choice that she is literally over the moon; she loves the challenge and the increasing intensity of the course…
