Botho University

Introduction

Botho University was established in 1997 and has rapidly evolved over the years to become a leading multidisciplinary high quality tertiary education provider. Botho University was one of the first local tertiary institutions in Botswana to be accredited by the Human Resources Development Council (HRDC). All programmes are approved by the Botswana Qualifications Authority (BQA) and the Council on Higher Education (CHE) in Lesotho. Botho University currently offers programmes through four faculties namely Faculty of Business and Accounting, Faculty of Computing, Faculty of Engineering and Applied Sciences and the Faculty of Education and Distance Learning. All our programmes have been developed with inputs from industry thus our graduates are ready to hit the ground running. We currently offer qualifications from certificate level to Master's degree level with plans in place for doctoral programmes to be rolled out very soon. With over 6000 students and almost 500 staff members and growing, Botho University is a dynamic and exciting place to be.

Botho University also offers a diverse range of programmes for in-service professionals and organizations. Under the Faculty of Education and Distance Learning, there are over 200 short-term professional development programmes, which can be customized to meet the client's requirements. Botho University has also forayed into distance learning programmes, with our first batch of distance learning students starting classes in February 2015. We are currently located in four different campuses located in Botswana - Gaborone, Francistown and Maun - and Lesotho – Maseru.

Botho University's strategic focus is to increase student diversity by attracting international students. Apart from Botswana and Lesotho, we already have a number of students from other countries in the region such as South Africa, Namibia, Zimbabwe, Zambia, Democratic Republic of Congo, and Ethiopia amongst others. Botho University also has a number of international partnerships with well-known international institutions such as University of Venda in South Africa,

Teesside University in the UK, Ohio University, Black Hills State University and Wayne State University in the USA, Indian School of Mines and Manipal University in India. Students studying with Botho University have an immense opportunity to take advantage of these international partnerships through our student exchange programmes. Our students have embarked on ground breaking internship projects in India and travelled to the USA and the UK gaining international exposure, all being part of our immense focus on graduate employability.

Botho University firmly believes in providing its students with a superior learning environment. We have continually invested in excellent infrastructure and latest technology driven learning resources. Our campus in Gaborone is well known for being of international standards and many national and international events have been held on our premises due to the quality of the facilities including the prestigious African Youth Games in 2015. Our upcoming campus in Francistown is already making headlines for the right reasons and plans are at an advanced stage to build a campus in Maun as well.

Academic rigor combined with excellence in all extracurricular activities, ensures that Botho University graduates possess a potent combination of skills. We are one of the top ranked sporting institutions in Botswana having won all the top accolades and championships in the country. This is not surprising considering the fact that we have extensive sporting facilities for basketball, netball, volleyball, soccer and chess.

Botho University is driven by the core values of excellence, leadership, and innovation, and aims to become a centre of excellence in higher education and a driver for positive social change. Our focus on quality has resulted in Botho University becoming the only University in Botswana with a BOS ISO 9001:2008 certification. With an impeccable reputation for quality in the market, Botho University graduates are leading the way in transforming the economy.

The level and the credit value of the module can be known from the Botho University prospectus website. For example: Consider the module C5-ICO shown under the BSc (Hons) in Computing programme in the prospectus/website as C5- ICO – Introduction to Computers (20). The number '5' indicates the level of this module; ICO is the module code and stands for "Introduction to Computing" and "(20)" is the credit value of this module. Thus the fee for this module will be 20 (credit value of the module) times 288.00 (Fees per credit for this level) = BWP 5760.00 Given below are the various levels and the standard fee per credit for that level. All fees shown are in Botswana Pula (BWP).
