Vision

Our Vision is to be a centre of excellence in teaching and research in the fields of mathematics and natural sciences and technology, imparting learning, skills, and values for promotion of rural and regional development in Southern Africa.

Science Enrichment Foundation Programme

The Science Foundation Programme, which consists of 12 modules, is an extended degree programme for a full academic year to facilitate the academic development of students whose prior learning has been adversely affected by educational or social inequalities.

The Science Enrichment Programme is intended for students who have achieved some level of competencies but still need some foundational provision to successfully complete their degree programmes within the stipulated time. The students of this programme must take 8 foundation modules together with 2 or more modules belonging to the first year degree programme.

Title of the formal (Ministerially approved) qualifications for which students will be registered in the Science Foundation Programme.

BSC (Majors in Mathematics, Physical Science, Chemistry, Biology, Statistics, Microbiology, Biochemistry, Computer Science) Offered by the School of Mathematical and Natural Sciences.
BENVSC (Environmental Science) BENVM (Environmental Management) Offered by the School of Environmental Sciences
BSCAGR (Agriculture) Offered by the School of Agriculture and Forestry
BSCNUT (Nutrition) Offered by the School of Health Sciences

Duration of study for the degree programme for students who have registered for the Science Foundation Programme are as follows:

BSC ---- 4 years
BENVSC ---- 4 years
BENVM ---- 5 years
BSCAGR ---- 5 years
BSCNUT ---- 5 years
