The University of Bolton established a new partnership with IDM Botswana in 2014.

The partnership currently uses a shared delivery arrangement with both Bolton and IDM staff delivering the programmes in Gaborone. Each programme is managed by a Link Tutor from the University of Bolton. The programmes are delivered in ‘block mode’: Students are required to attend four day blocks of teaching every six to seven weeks.

These blocks are delivered over the weekend to assist work based learners and minimise the amount of leave from work required. Students also have extensive support via a Virtual Learning Environment (Moodle). Students have access to IDM’s campus facilities and the University’s online study resources. Both undergraduate and postgraduate programmes are offered as detailed below. 

Postgraduate programmes offered are as detailed below.

  • MSc Supply Chain Management
  • MSc Project Management
