OFF CAMPUS PROGRAMMES

The Bindura University of Science Education off-campus learning model is a technology-enhanced learning model that comprises of guided and independent learning activities. Using this model, students will access education from anywhere as long as they have the requisite electronic devices and internet connectivity. This reduces costs for students in terms of transport, accommodation and reduced tuition fees. The main feature of this model is its interactivity as it uses applications such as Zoom and other interactive discussion forums. Periodically, students will be assembled at designated centers in their cluster areas for practical lessons.
