The initial academic programmes of the university have been developed through a needs assessment by talking to leaders in industry and economic sub-sectors, church leaders and students coming out of existing conventional, as well as Open and Distance Learning (ODL) institutions. This approach from the outset demonstrates that Trinity University will not impose imported theoretical programmes which are not responsive to the needs of our nation, communities, continent and the world. In time, we expect the university to develop and expand to meet the growing needs of future generations, but still remain relevant at all times.
Mode of delivery
The mode of delivery of academic programmes is conducted formal and Open and Distance Learning (ODL). The University operates on a semester system, consisting of two (2) semesters in a year.
