Diploma and Degree Programmes
Part-time study programmes are conducted by the Institute of Education Development (InED) which is located on the 5th floor of the Administrative Block at UiTM Perlis. This study mode was introduced in July, 1980 at the Jalan Othman campus and was subsequently extended to other branch campuses in the 1980s. Formerly known as the Off-Campus Study Programme, it serves to provide opportunities for Bumiputeras who are in employment, to pursue studies at diploma and degree level outside office-hours. In December 1990, the Off-Campus Study Programme was renamed as the Distance Learning Programme (PJJ), with similar objectives. For diploma and degree programmes, candidates are required to attend four / five seminars per semester. Thus, the programme has attracted enrolment from members of the local community. Since 1999, a new programme has been introduced, known as the Flexible Learning Programme (FLP) / e-PJJ through which, students are able to interact with the lecturer(s) via e-mail, besides attending regular seminars. Up to July 2009, the number of students pursuing part-time study programmes is 76.
The part-time courses offered are:
This newly-introduced programme in the July-November 2005 semester offers Executive Master of Business Administration (EMBA) to individuals interested in pursuing post-graduate education on a part-time basis. The minimum study period is 2 years, which requires candidates to attend classes on weekends. There are 6 candidates pursuing this course up to July 2009.
