I reached my goal! At least the part I set out to do back in 2017. I graduated from the University of the People at the end of October 2020, and now it is time to wrap it up.

Grand Finale!

Today, I completed the courses Introduction to Health Psychology, Introduction to Sociology, and Programming Fundamentals - the last three I needed to complete the required 120 credits for my Bachelor's in Science Business Administration degree (BSBA).

The Program Advisor

As you embark on your educational journey at the University of the People, the university assigns a program advisor to you to journey alongside you. Any questions you have, you can ask this advisor.

Finishing Strong

I have just completed Term 5 of 2020. And it went well in the exams, thank you for asking! In September 2020, the first term for the 2020/21 academic year will start, and that will be my last term at UoPeople. With the end in sight, I can now reflect on the previous three years and celebrate many more highlights than low points.

In South Africa, the lockdown started midnight, Friday, March 27, 2020. I wrote two exams on Thursday and one on Friday. For me, that was the end of term 3, and I could take a little more than a week off from my studies.
