The agreement between IIE/Varsity College and The Open University enables students who have successfully completed the IIE Bachelor of Arts degree in Corporate Communication or Bachelor of Commerce degree at Varsity College to progress with their studies by registering directly with the OU for the equivalent of the final year of a BA (Honours) Open degree or a BSc(Honours) Open degree.
Students will begin with three years of study at one of the IIE’s Varsity College campuses in South Africa for a bachelors degree which will enable them to claim credit transfer of up to 240 credits towards the 360 credits required for the OU BA/BSc Open (Honours) degree. Students will then register directly with the OU for a further 120 credits of OU online study at level 3.
