Community-based learning

Curricular community engagement is another feature of studying at UP. Several undergraduate and Honours programmes in the EMS Faculty have compulsory curricular community engagement for which students earn credits. In 2016 more than 13,000 students in 152 modules engaged in communities to earn credit towards their degrees while several thousand also contributed to community development on a voluntary basis. As a result, UP graduates have a sense of social responsibility, respect human rights and dignity and exhibit informed civic, cultural and environmental awareness.
