    | Probably wouldn’t recommend.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    According to the internet research I found this bag and I am trying to compete to continue my studies.

    Course highlights:

    This course is applied in all areas of knowledge, because a teacher teaches and teaches society at the same time, but the course of education is more valuable for the promotion of the intellectual formation of man.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Well this course is important because a teacher teaches and teaches society at the same time, and the education course serves as a platform in education.

    | Would highly recommend.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This is a good course especially for people working in higher institution environment. It teaches you how to work with students, handle their social matters and help manage their financial needs.

    Course highlights:

    The most interesting part was the funding system in higher education . This topic introduced me to different categories of higher education i.e. public and private good. I came to realise that public good institutions irrespective of financial challenges, they are doing their level best to provide quality service in par with private good institutions. I also understood the notion of students as customers, in the sense that we should not bent to students demands simply because they pay for our salaries and other institutional operations, but rather treat them as clients who need our service to mold them into useful beings who will contribute to their communities after graduated from our institutions.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Studying is not easy neither it is cheap. Always divide your work time and study time. Commitment is the key. Do a lot of reading and online research, this will make you understand education from different perspectives.
