Fields of study include agriculture, art and design, business, computing, engineering, health sciences, science and technology, tourism and hospitality.

As the institutions have a comprehensive system, students can easily choose courses according to their level of understanding. For instance, students can study certificate level courses to strengthen their English proficiency level and academic skills. They can then move into other higher level academic programs.
