Lifelong learning is a philosophy and an approach, which encourages and enables students to continue to learn through provision of flexible, convenient, relevant learning opportunities and curricula, which promote lifelong learning qualities.

The Division for Lifelong Learning (DLL) was formally constituted in late 1998 and initial priorities were identified as Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL), Continuing Education, Part-time Studies, and Workplace Learning.

The DLL’s Research and Development reports and publications are uploaded on this site. Hard copies of these research reports and other source material are deposited in the Special Collections Section of the UWC Archives in the basement of the Main Library. The copies include material from the DLL’s marketing and promotion campaigns which ran between 2000 and 2015 e.g. the different advertising campaigns, the Part-time and Continuing Education Prospectuses. They also include posters, cards, CDs and DVD material from the Annual Julius Nyerere Memorial Lectures (2004-2014).

Additional material can be consulted by making an appointment with the archivist Mr Ulrich Meder ( The Terms and Conditions of the University concerning Access of Information and the Terms of the Copyright Act apply.
