    From the venerable source of truth Wikipedia, Unicaf university is listed as a Malawian universirty. It looks Unicaf offers its own degrees online from bachelor to phd.

    Yes, although it's perfectly likely that it's also a teaching institution for foreign universities.

    So it would seem, Steve. From the UNICAF site:

    "UNICAF is the leading online platform in sub-Saharan Africa offering quality higher education degree programmes in collaboration with UK, US and European universities

    UNICAF partners with UK, US and European universities to offer online quality higher education degrees to students in Africa. Current partners include the University of South Wales (UK), the Marymount California University (USA) and the University of Nicosia (Europe)."


    I have no reason to disbelieve this. Don't know if the diploma would show University of South Wales or, possibly, both schools. One thing for sure: If there's any special deal financially, it would (and should) be reserved for African students and possibly those from developing nations outside Africa. Any North Americans, Europeans etc. trying to enrol through UNICAF would likely (and should be, as I see it) referred to the partner University - in this case, South Wales (UK).

    Come to think of it, they even say UNICAF is only for students in Africa. "online quality higher education degrees to students in Africa." That takes care of that, I guess. I wish them every success.

    UNICAF offers MBA from University of South Wales for merely GBP 2,482.

    If the degree specifies only University of South Wales and not UNICAF, i believe its a good package. I am trying to get more info.

    On the other hand, they operate 5 "Information Centres" located around the world. There would be no need for that if they were accepting only African students. I'd look for a more definitive statement from the school before I decided what the exact admission policy might be.

    Cameroon Information Centre
    Hong Kong Information Centre
    India Information Centre
    London Information Centre
    South Africa Information Centres
    American College of Sports Medicine

    It looks like international students are welcome. There was an article on the site about Jamaica.
    Unicaf has applied to offers its own DBA, which has an international scope and focus. https://unicafuniversity.com/course/...istration-dba/

    Yes, it does. And those with incomes less than $20,000 per year may apply for scholarships. As long as they have the required English proficiency and meet entrance requirements, it doesn't matter where prospective students are from.

    That's probably a record low, these days - certainly a record for a UK MBA . Lowest-cost properly-authorized school I ever found for MBA was Don Bosco Global U. in India. It was about $2300 then, but their fees have climbed a bit. I believe a DBU Global MBA now costs $3,600 total in tuition, plus about $800 (4 x 200) for exam fees over 2 years. That would put it a few hundred above the UNICAF / USW program.

    University of South Wales lists the price of this program as £12,635. I can't find the GBP 2,482 offer.

    I can't find it either, Stanislav - but I have no doubt it exists. This poster has proven to have reliable info in the past. I figure it's a UNICAF special rate - a scholarship deal for those under the $20,000 threshold, or possibly only those qualified to deal with the African UNICAF portal. I don't think they release the details unless you make a specific scholarship enquiry. I think there's an onsite button or link for that.
