To pursue education does not only concern children but adults as well. Knowing that education is the key of life, we also realize that acquiring education, and thus acquiring certain knowledge, skills or profession goes hand in hand with realising ones own goals and dreams. If unfolding your potentials takes acquiring some dicisive skills in order to reach your goals, then education is the way to go.

Referring to the social-economic situation of Tanzania, many workers in formal and informal economic sector earn less than they need for their living because of low skills (Ntallima 2014; World Bank 2014). In other words, the poor production in Tanzania and the poor revenue of many businesses is to a significant extend contributed by low skills and thus low education. With this, Tanzanians are encouraged to reflect on their skills and earnings and see whether there is a need to pursue the necessary education in order to increase their potential.

Though education in Tanzania is not always cheap, still there are means of pursuing it with limited financial capabilities. The diagram below is meant to illustrate that education can be accessed at every age, with any educational background (even if none exists). People who have family responsibities, like mothers with children, do also have the chance of bringing their children to their respective educational institution and thus create time to pursue their education or acquire necessary educational skills, if no friends or relatives are available to take care of their children.

*MEMKWA refers to “Mpango wa Elimu ya Msingi kwa Watoto
waliokosa” – a primary educational programme for children and youth under 18 years who did not have a chance to acquire primary education before.

Despite of the illustration above, there is a broad sprectrum of different levels of education. This ranges from school education, to vocational or technical education, short and long courses on different fields, professional education, further trainings etc. – all geared to your needs. Here is an example list of diploma courses offered at different institutions in Tanzania. Other courses can be sought at different higher learning institutions or education institututions in Tanzania.

Most of the above illustrated educational institutions are known, from which information can be sought about their entry requirements and fees.
