Online Courses Launched by MAPS College

This October, for the first time in the history of the MAPS College, students will be able to undertake 34 courses across seven subject areas online from anywhere in the Maldives, helping to further increase the inclusivity of education in the country.

Achieving a high-quality MAPS College qualification can transform lives. Graduates of MAPS College are able to access better quality job opportunities; perform better within their current roles, and identify opportunities for personal and professional development more effectively in all aspects of their life. For the first time, these benefits will also be accessible to students across the Maldives without the need to study in Male’.

At MAPS College, online students will be able to complete 100% of the lectures in their own homes and islands, making the qualifications ideal for those living outside of Male’ who are looking to achieve a high-quality qualification.

The quality of education provided by MAPS College is well known throughout Male’, thanks to a high-quality lecturing team, rigorous student support, and provision of world-class resources through free online libraries, free access to Microsoft 365 for all students, and approval by MQA of all programmes. From October 2019 onwards, students across the Maldives will be able to experience the same level of quality from their own homes and islands.

All MAPS College online courses are fully approved by the MQA, and range from Advanced Certificate up to Bachelor’s degree level courses.
