Why study online?
Do you want to get a head start for university while taking a subject that you’re passionate about? Extend your learning beyond the classroom by studying online with Pamoja.
Pamoja Taught courses provide practical experience of collaborative tools and digital technologies, promoting self-direction and independence in learning; skills that are highly desired by universities around the world.
How does it work?
You join a classroom of up to 35 students from all around the world, and are given access to the course content through an online learning platform. The content is broken down into weekly lessons: each week, objectives will be introduced to help you stay on track.
The course is mostly taught asynchronously using the materials and resources already available on the learning platform. You also have the opportunity to join a live lesson with your teacher every week, where you can interact with classmates and have your questions answered straight away.
My Pamoja Scholarship helped me get into university
My name is Raghav, and I’m coming to the end of a two-year scholarship with Pamoja. Before I was offered the chance to apply, I hadn’t ever heard of anyone getting an IB scholarship and the benefits have been numerous. I recently completed my university applications and the experience of learning online gave me a huge advantage; both in terms of skill set and the format itself. It was the one thing that I wrote about for every application because it made me stand out. It definitely helped me to get in to most of the universities I applied for and it’s also been a fantastic experience all round.

The GSC meet online monthly to define and implement different ways to engage with and support Pamoja students through their online learning journey. They also publish bi-monthly newsletters that offer a student view on international topics of interest, and include top tips, learning moments, brainteasers, student artwork and content submissions from the wider student community. All new Pamoja students are given the opportunity to apply for a position on the GSC.
