The need for a higher education is an ever growing one in today’s society and there is no shortage of facilities seeking to entice the career-minded individual to enrol with them. However, many tend to overlook what is arguably one of the most significant questions that faces the majority of would be students – how to pay for this desperately needed opportunity without graduating under a mountain of debt. This obstacle is one of the ways in which UNICAF greatly differs from its competition, offering a fast response to scholarship applications to incoming students in an effort to ease that burden, taking specifically into account the financial situation of the applicant.
The UNICAF brand also has the added bonus of offering their internationally accredited university degree programmes on a flexible online platform. While UNICAF has only recently begun to offer their services in Jamaica, they are already well-established and thriving educational providers in a number of countries worldwide. UNICAF operates its own university, Unicaf University, and is also in partnership with Universities in the UK, Europe and the US. The educational opportunities that UNICAF has established includes campuses and learning centres in Cyprus, Greece, Romania, Nigeria, Malawi, Egypt, Kenya, Hong Kong, and also works with a number of renowned partners in the delivery of international education.
UNICAF recognises that university education should be an experience and one that works with the individual instead of demanding that the students conform the life they currently try to lead to suit their curriculum. The online platform, combined with their scholarship opportunities, allows students to have access to international programmes with a delivery mode that offers flexibility, as well as affordability. Every Jamaican student, past present and future, is aware of the life long sentence that student loans offer and the chance to seek an education outside the country is not one most persons are given, especially with travel restrictions and a rising cost of living.
The Digital Marketing manager for UNICAF, George E. Kyriacou, provided a wonderful summary of how the UNICAF seeks to provide access to an internationally renowned education, at an affordable price for any student seeking to obtain a degree, whether as an undergraduate or a postgraduate.
“UNICAF has made a dramatic impact over the last few years by providing scholarships to students that could normally not afford the full tuition fees of distinguished universities. This has not only had a great impact on their lives but also on the wider local community by giving more people access to higher education.”
