For example, a student enrolled in a four-year undergraduate programme can choose to exit after one year with a certificate or after two years with a diploma. If the student decides to continue, he or she can complete the full degree. So, the system embodies the principles of flexibility, adaptability and student-centricity. “It is designed to align with global educational norms, such as those in the US, where students have the freedom to switch majors, take academic breaks, or even transfer credits between different educational institutions,”
This modular learning approach breaks down educational programmes into smaller, manageable units, each with its own set of outcomes and credits. These credits are like building blocks; students can accumulate them along the way and combine them to achieve different qualifications.  “Additionally, the model recognises prior learning experiences, such as work experience or informal knowledge acquisition. Suppose a psychology graduate aspires for transition into a data-related field. In that case, the student can seamlessly do so by earning a data analysis certificate.”
