UWC - the First African University to Receive Internationally Accredited SAS e-Badges
Sixteen Statistical Science Honours and five Master’s students at the University of the Western Cape (UWC) passed a highly-respected accredited programme, granting them access to coveted SAS e-badges.
These e-badges are linked to successful students’ social media profiles and serve as recognition and confirmation of their verifiable skills in their field, both locally and internally.
The UWC students became the first at an African higher education institution to obtain these e-badges, which relate to validating learning and sharing one’s achievements.
