Growing with Quality


BA ISAGO University College is a citizen owned private University College with branches in Gaborone and Francistown in Botswana.


Ba Isago University College, Botswana

Preparing learners for the future

The University College has identified itself with the Government of Botswana’s Commission on the Revised National Policy on Education (RNPE), which supported the establishment of a partnership between the Government and the private sector, in the provision of tertiary education with the considered aim to create greater access to higher education for its citizens.


BA ISAGO’s programmes are accredited by two quality assurance bodies regulating tertiary education in Botswana. Both the Botswana Training Authority (BOTA) and Tertiary Education Council (TEC) have recognized BA ISAGO as an institution offering quality and relevant programmes in support of the country’s human resources needs. The University College strives to offer excellent facilities with dedicated academic and administrative staff who are ready to facilitate learning, training and research.


BA ISAGO University College has embraced and subscribes to the ideals of strategic partnership in education and training through its collaboration with internationally renowned institutions such as the University of South Africa (UNISA) and the National University of Science and Technology (NUST) in Zimbabwe. BA ISAGO also continues to develop strong collaborative institutional partnerships with other highly reputable universities in the region and around the world.


The University College is pursuing programmes that promote South-South cooperation, and at the same time maximising prospects and opportunities for further and higher education in Botswana. The institution has positioned itself to play a critical role in the SADC region and more widely in Africa and the rest of the world. The University College is vigorously exploring prospects, possibilities, opportunities and strategies designed to provide study opportunities to students from outside the borders of Botswana. These efforts further give concrete meaning to the realisation of the principles and ideals of the African Union’s New Partnership for Africa’s Development (NEPAD).
