I wish to express my sentiments towards my study experience with Zimbabwe Open University. I completed my Bachelor of Science Honours in Psychology degree with Z.O.U and I realized that it is like any other university in Zimbabwe. A number of reasons lured me to register with Zimbabwe Open University.


It allows distance learning . This was palliative to me as I was teaching at Nyahundo Primary School in Chendambuya before my current station at Nyameni Primary school in Marondera. It gives opportunities to students to be with their families at the same time.

What makes me proud today is my choice of career soon after my HND Human Resources Management and the Zimbabwe Teacher Education Diploma. (1999-2001). This was because ZOU was in its early stages beginning to stretch its wings. I was contemplating embarking on social sciences with other institutions. I was split in between at the time. The first puzzle was how would I manage going to a conventional institution when I had a family to look after everyday. The second one was how would  I manage  a lump sum fee given the small salary I had.
