“A student adviser also needs to be a good listener, be able to handle applicants with different personalities and temperaments and do many different tasks at the same time, so multitasking is a vital skill to possess.”
“The greatest challenge I face as a student adviser is convincing interested applicants that we are a real organisation offering financially challenged individuals in Africa and the world the opportunity to earn, through online study or blended learning, quality, internationally recognised degrees from reputable partner universities, at a fraction of the cost thanks to the UNICAF Scholarship Programme.”
“Our reward comes when our applicants successfully enroll as students with one of the reputable partner universities, thanking us for assisting them in commencing this most important journey of their lives, which can shape their own future and that of their families too.”
The Internet explosion has led to an infinite number of online degree programmes on offer. This never ending range of online university degree programmes, makes choosing the right one a difficult procedure, because of the many parameters one has to consider. Corporations, businesses and employers in general favour candidates who hold degrees from internationally recognised institutions. However, many people living in developing countries, far from urban areas, and with limited incomes, don’t have the option to travel abroad for their studies. So, they can either study online, with a university based in a far-away country, usually offering little support and leaving students to their own devices, or enrol with a local university, which may have limited options to offer.
