Welcome to ZAOU. In its eighth year, ZAOU gives me a sense of achievement in that over 1,000 students graduated from the programs of the University in two graduation ceremonies and ZAOU has impacted on provision of higher education in which Open and Distance Learning (ODL) is recognized as a key mode of education delivery. This is not an easy or cheap mode but it is the most convenient for students who are working.
ODL will enable you to carry on with your economically productive roles while you academically progress and become even more contributive.
Thank you for studying with ZAOU. Study the vision, mission statement and values of ZAOU and embrace them for your own and the good of your country. ZAOU staff of different categories and levels of its academic and administrative positions will give you support as you embark on your studies for 2012.
