Funding opportunities for a Master’s degree can be a very tiring and tricky procedure for applicants. Here is why a Unicaf Scholarship is an opportunity you should not miss when searching for financial support.   A life-changing opportunity   What do Jeff Bezos (Amazon founder and CEO), Steve Ballmer (former CEO of Microsoft), and Stephenie Meyer (novelist and author of the Twilight series) have in common? They were all scholarship recipients. Their careers and lives probably would not have been the same if they had not gone to university. What they needed was an opportunity – a great…


[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] Is UK higher education a privilege for the few?  Tuition fees have burdened many young people financially and pushed others to abandon their dreams as the high cost was discouraging. Without a doubt, a scholarship is one way to earn a degree and start your career debt-free. Unfortunately, many talented but disadvantaged students get to study in western universities with great financial support. However, this is not a privilege just for the ones who study abroad. Unicaf is offering generous scholarships to eligible students for online programmes, receiving the same education through…


It seems like it has been an eternity since we last opened social media or watched the news without seeing COVID-19. The year 2020 has reshaped our lives in ways that we have yet to fathom. Not only has it had a great economic impact, but it also changed the way we go about our daily lives.


  To survive the unprecedented crisis caused by the pandemic, mankind has turned to technology. With the help of technology we work, shop, study and even socialise and entertain ourselves online. But what is the importance of technology in shaping the workplace of the future? Protecting the health of office workers Albert De Plazaola, global strategy director at a design firm, which has worked for Facebook and Yahoo, says: “We’re now hyperaware of health risks…. And employers are hypersensitive about the potential for liability, if people get sick at work.” Obviously, the open-plan workplace is no longer effective. Some…


  A microscopic virus made people seriously ill at the end of 2019, and by 2020 the world came to a standstill. Yet, 2020 also has positive lessons to give us. Like the importance of taking better care of our mental health. With so many threats facing us, and so many changes in our ‘normality’, we must find ways to remain strong, balanced and productive. This is why Psychology degrees are more important than ever right now. 2020, a year of disasters and threats Violence and armed conflicts are continuing, cities are destroyed, displaced persons seek refuge in foreign lands,…


The rising importance of healthcare managers Understandably, the corona virus pandemic has highlighted the significance of the healthcare sector at the national and international level. As a result, governments and private healthcare organisations seek to employ capable, well trained healthcare managers and leaders. Not just to handle disease outbreaks, but also to help maintain the physical and mental health of the population. At the same time, unemployment rates are rising dramatically, and people are searching for new job opportunities. Thus, many professionals looking for a new position, view the pandemic as an inspiration for a new career in health management.


With news of several effective vaccines coming soon and better treatments for Covid-19, the world is now desperate for a return to 'normality'. The global economy needs it, individual businesses of every size and shape need it, and people need it too. But what form will this 'normality' take? Will flexibility and change define our new normality post Covid-19, as some experts claim?


  Trend forecasters, business analysts, economists and academics are trying to paint the day after the pandemic. They are trying to answer how national economies will adapt, how the way we work will change, what skills and qualifications will be required in the global workplace of the future. In other words, they are trying to assess whether the skills imparted by business degrees will still be relevant in the post pandemic era. Meanwhile, coronavirus infections are still spiking in many countries, while economies remain slow. A large number of businesses close down, or file for bankruptcy. Thousands of people are losing…


  University World News refers to World Bank reports about the fast growth rate of several African economies. As a result, the middle class on the continent is expanding. Millions of parents in Africa now can and want to support their children through university. Yet, traditional brick and mortar universities are slow to develop, so there are not enough new places to satisfy demand. Of course, the obvious alternative is online learning. The question is, can online learning build a capable, qualified work force in Africa, to drive the growth and development of the continent? Modern technology offers solutions…
