Directorate Of Open And Distance Learning

The desire to attain quality tertiary education and training has increased over the years among Ghanaians and the world at large. Inadequate infrastructure and other resources have posed a challenge for tertiary institutions to absorb the growing numbers of applicants who sought for tertiary education. As a result, the Open and Distance Learning (ODL) Directorate was set up with the aim of providing an opportunity for people to have access to tertiary education and more importantly, to provide flexible learning opportunities to the working class to learn at a time, place, and pace which satisfy their circumstances and requirements.

The ODL offers accredited online undergraduate and postgraduate programmes from the University of Applied Sciences, Germany, and a scholarship package for prospective applicants to these programmes. The ODL also runs HND and Diploma programmes via distance, weekends and evenings modes. With this mode, the Directorate ensures that the quality standards of  teaching and assessment of the Univerity are maintained to create parity between the conventional system and the distance learning system.
