CUIB is not an Online University. CUIB also understands that the 3 or 4 contact hours of lectures is very limited in training students for the 21st Century. Therefore, it is adopting a Hybrid Ubiquitous Teaching approach – meaning that there will be face to face contact hours and online teaching in all campuses; which include Buea, Douala and Yaoundé.
In order not to miss out on the CUIB Student Experience and Culture, students are encouraged to Sign Up for a study Center either in Buea, Douala or Yaoundé as well as follow up with Student Services Center for Accommodation Facilities. Students are encouraged to Sign Up for these accommodations because of the unique CUIB Culture and Student Experience.
This culture is characterized by our Flagships events, Guest Speakers, President’s Addresses to Students, EoC, Volunteerism, Community Service, collaborative learning between students and Faculty etc.
