Tulsa, Oklahoma, September 27, 2018 -Star University representatives announced today that Star University has partnered with The University College of Tourism and Ecology (UCTE) in Poland to help strengthen its higher education offerings in West and Central Africa.
Students who graduate from the Star University/ UCTE partnership will earn their credential from institutions licensed and accredited on two continents. Star University’s Digital Media certificate program is licensed by the Oklahoma Board of Private Vocational Schools and will be one of two certificates offered in Nigeria in January 2019. The second certificate is a Certificate in Computer Programing led by UCTE. This certificate will focus on important programming languages such as C++. Competences range from beginner to advanced level courses.
The US Bureau of Labour Statistics forecasts that employment of software developers is projected to grow by 24% from 2016 to 2026. Both certificate programs will help grow the digital skills base for Africa’s rapidly expanding digital economy. The programs include an internship that will allow students to apply career-ready skills as well as meet potential employers.
“It is a pleasure for us to announce UCTE’s collaboration with Star University in Africa. Our goal is to promote innovation and the empowerment of African communities through digital technology and the vocational and technical training offered jointly by UCTE and Star University,” says Maria Grzechynka, Chancellor of The University College of Tourism and Ecology.
Learners wishing to be part of Star/UCTE programs, the minimum requirement for admission will be a high school or equivalent certificate from an accredited institution in an African country. Graduates of the certificate programs will have the option of applying their acquired learning toward a bachelor's degree or enter the workforce.
The programs will open enrollment in October for programs starting in January 2019. Scholarships are available.
