Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I apply?
The Kaimosi Friends University College eLearning programmes target people who are unable to make the time for full-time education yet need various certifications for professional and self improvement. Consequently, participants are able to upgrade their skills and qualifications on the job as they progress.

Who is eligible?
Programmes offered at the Kaimosi Friends University College eLearning Directorate are tailored to meet the needs of working and other out-of-school people by providing high quality online modular diplomas and degrees to facilitate life-long learning. All applicants must meet the minimum application requirements of the programmes they wish to pursue.

Does this mode of learning suit me?
If you are in full time employment, have family commitments, live in a remote area, are taking other courses on a full time basis or would like to pay for the number of modules that you can afford each time, then you are eligible to enroll.

Do I need to be computer literate? How about the internet?
Yes. Applicants should be computer literate and have access to a computer. You also require the internet to enable you access the Kaimosi Friends University College eLearning portal, which is the main course delivery platform.

How do I apply?
All applicants fill in and submit applications as instructed in the Kaimosi Friends University College eLearning Directorate. The applicant will immediately receive an e-mail acknowledging receipt of their application.

What is a module?
A module refers to an examinable unit for which a student individually registers and pays. One unit course is therefore equivalent to one module.

What is the maximum number of modules that I can take per semester?
This varies from programme to programme.

What are module levels?
A level is equivalent to a year of study in the corresponding fulltime programme in the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th year.
Under graduate eLearning modules are offered in Levels 1, 2, 3 and 4 which are equivalent to year 1, 2, 3 and 4 of the regular programmes.

 What is the mode of course work delivery?

All programmes are offered on blended mode. A number of Continuous Assessment Tests (CATs) are also taken online. Certain modules are blended, including short periods of face-to-face contact with lecturers. All students registered for eLearning modules take sit-in examinations at the end of each semester.

Can I skip the Online Orientation to eLearning?
No. This is a mandatory prerequisite for all programmes offered at the eLearning Directorate, taken once, upon registration for the first eLearning modules. It usually runs for 1 week.

Where will I sit my Examinations?
Examinations and practical aspects of the module will be conducted at Kaimosi Friends University College. University College Examination Rules and Regulations are available on the university College web site.
