What are modular courses?
Modular courses are courses that are especially designed for people who have a hecitic lifestyle and might not be able to commit to a course that has a very rigid schedule. Students are able to “hop on and hop off” the course by completing one module at a time. Students will cover a module in 6 weeks ( 2 weeks of lecturing and 2 weeks of assessment). Once finished students can hop onto the next module or take a short break. Courses that are designed in this manner are the Executive MBA, Executive MBA specialising in logistics and supply chain management and the MSc in Strategy, leadership and change management.

Guidance for Referees: We would appreciate if you could use your letter headed paper. Please give an assessment of the suitability of the applicant for the higher education programme they have applied for and where possible, including the following points:

  1. Existing achievement, with particular reference to subjects relating to the applicant’s chosen programme
  2. Academic potential, including predicted results or performance
  3. Motivation and commitment towards the chosen programme
  4. Any relevant skills achievement, whether certified or not
  5. Powers of analysis and independent thought
  6. Any additional factors which may have affected, or will affect in the future, their performance
  7. Information about any special needs and other requirements

What should I provide when I am asked to get a reference?

Undergraduate students must provide two academic references. Postgraduate students should also try to provide two academic references. If this is not possible (for example if you have been out of education for more than three years) you may provide two work-related references as an alternative.

References must:
– Be on the headed paper of the institution with an official stamp
