I registered for my Research Proposal Module with UNISA, costing $231.34

with one comment

I was successful in registering for the Research Proposal Module for my Doctor of Education degree in Comparative Education at the University of South Africa.  Amazingly, while this module will allow me to work with a high quality mentor professor for a year, it only cost me $231.34, due to the exchange rate between the South African Rand to the U.S. Dollar.  It is this cost differential between developing nations (such as South Africa) and the U.S. that has continued to bring me back to the idea that these nations should be doing Virtual Onshoring of their schools.

  1. Virtual onshoring in higher education only works when the source university is one that is highly respected because of a past advanced culture dedicated to higher education. Case in point: South Africa and the historic colonization of that country by Dutch Afrikaners. Case in point where such a strategy will not work: The Congo, Equitorial Guinea, Ethiopia, Somolia and almost any African nation that has not had a strong european legacy that could have developed institutions of higher learning in the past for their own european colonists.
