Distance Education

The Department of Distance Education (DDE) offers Diploma and Degree programmes in collaboration with the relevant faculties of the University. All these programmes currently use print media and audio visual modes of learning. DDE students are scattered across the country and attend residential/tutorial sessions at different centres depending on the student’s location. The clientele are mostly working adults who were not able to study full time with the University due to a variety of reasons. The structure of DDE programmes is such that the students are able to study at their own pace and are only expected to attend 3 weeks of residential tutorial and assessment sessions at different intervals. Otherwise, the programs are structured such that the most of the time they study independently. The Department of Distance Education offers the following programs:

  • Business Degree programmes (BDP) 
    • Bachelors Degree in Accounting 
    • Bachelors Degree in  Finance
    • Bachelors Degree in Management
    • Bachelors Degree in Marketing
  • Diploma in Adult Education
  • Diploma in NGO-Management

The BDP programmes are run from Gaborone, Francistown, Maun and Palapye centres and the Diploma programmes are run only from the Gaborone Campus.
