Our Accessibility to Higher Education
We require each student to take what he/she has learned and put it to good use. Thus, in addition to fulfilling the minimum admission requirements set by the National Council for Higher Education and the University admission requirements we ask that each student be employed or have access to a working environment where he/she can apply the theories and methods learnt in either class or online.
UTAMU will continue to explore all opportunities that engage both national and international students in the same equal opportunities.
Tuition fees and functional fees are uniform for students on a given academic programme irrespective of where they come from and we also adhere to international standards of people with disability and cultural norms.
We offer flexible triannual class schedules and students can begin class in January, May and September of every year. A prospective student can apply at any time of the year and have his/her application considered for admission.
We bridge the gap between theory and practice by hiring teaching staff members who bring more than an advanced degree to the classroom. We engage practice staff from the rank of Practice Lecturer to Practice Professor who are working professionals outside the University environment and who are encouraged to stay involved in academic and scholarly activities.
Our diploma and degree programmes are designed and periodically reviewed to provide a quality education based on relevant and effective learning. Our School Deans, Heads of Academic Departments and select staff members including Practitioner Staff collaborate to create each programme based on specific objectives for desired student outcomes.
Our focus on reaching out to the community is specifically knowledge formation, acquisition and transfer that proactively allow societal and public participation.
Our partnerships and networking community plays key functions that contribute to the knowledge economy. UTAMU educational experience focuses on building national and international engagements that integrate private and public sectors, government, and funding bodies in order to achieve the scholarly practice.
