About Advance HE
Advance HE’s role is to support leadership and effective governance, tackle inequalities, and enhance teaching and learning. It was founded in the UK to transform and improve the practices in the higher education landscape and has recently adopted a global perspective to accept international University membership. Besides assisting its members with multiple outputs and resources, the agency also “listens” to the voices that represent the diverse HE sector. Advance HE stresses the importance of implementing sustainable development practices within the HE environment while assisting its members to deliver successfully on their strategies.
Unicaf University, since its foundation, has been an innovator in online and blended learning in Africa, reaching out to underserved communities while embracing their cultural diversity. Whilst other higher education institutions worldwide were forced to accelerate their adoption of technology during the Covid19 pandemic, Unicaf University was already delivering quality online programmes through its cutting-edge virtual platform.
Unicaf University is the first University in continental Africa to join Advance HE. Unicaf promises to continue serving its students’ unique needs, drawing on the most up-to-date pedagogical approaches, practices, and methods. Eligible students can earn a scholarship to study for an internationally recognised degree and experience learning through the use of new technologies.
