The emphasis in education is one of providing young people with a basic general education through schools, followed by further education opportunities at colleges and universities with a commitment thereafter to ‘lifetime learning’ so as to equip people with the necessary basic and vocational skills to adapt to the changing needs of the workplace.

- College of Business, Technology and Engineering
- College of Social Sciences and Arts
- College of Health, Wellbeing and Life Sciences
