At KIUST, students don't waste time commuting to campus or courses.
Although students are enrolled with KIUST as Distance Learning/On-line students using a flexible mode of delivery, where appropriate local registered training institutions/universities situated in different parts of the world have been accredited and authorized by KIUST to serve as “Learning Centres” and provide face-to-face classes to students in their countries. Learning Centres use a KIUST approved syllabus to prepare online/distance learning students in their countries for KIUST assignments, projects and examinations. Since KIUST is the examining body, all student assignments, projects and examinations are set, marked and/or moderated by KIUST Professors. The preparation of students for assignments, projects and examinations by the Learning Centre requires providing full-time and/or part-time face-to-face support classes (e.g. lectures, tutorials and seminars) to KIUST online/distance learning students in their respective countries. Although the Learning Centres provide students with a face-to-face ‘campus’ experience, all communications to KIUST from the students and the Learning Centres are required to be done on-line via email or fax.
At KIUST, students can study in the comfort of their homes or offices.
At KIUST, working students do not have to relocate, re-schedule their jobs or take leave of absence to attend classes.
At KIUST, students are from many walks of life with a wide diversity of backgrounds, culture, age and experience.
At KIUST, people who don't have time to attend full-time classes have the flexibility of distance learning/On-line mode of study.
