Willemien Law, head of Open Enrolment Programmes at USB-ED explains: “Delegates may use the skills and knowledge they acquired during the SMDP
to obtain a recognised academic qualification from an international higher education institution through on-line learning.”
The qualification is aimed at individuals who are employed and wish to gain academic recognition for learning already achieved. It is an individual learning programme, focused on job-relevant learning, so it is imperative that candidates are employed. Law says the degree provides those without a tertiary qualification with an excellent opportunity to complete a relevant degree while continuing with their job.
