SCPU was set up to work in co-operation with a range of Professional Qualification Awarding bodies to offer degree programs which would fulfil the relevant professional bodies membership requirements.
Mission Statement of SCPU
As far as practical education should be made easily accessible to the people through classroom campuses, satellite campuses, open learning and hybrid learning rather than forcing the students to leave their local community in order to obtain knowledge not available locally.
Learning should be a lifelong experience and that higher education should be available to all who qualify, and not just school leavers.
An important part of the SCPU's philosophy flowing from its mission statement, is that it endeavors to take education to the people where there is a need for it.
