No, it doesn't have meaningful international accreditation. The $18,000 price is very high. For only $20,000 you can have the Illinois iMBA, which is one of the top business schools worldwide.

No it is 12,635 sterling pound, but UNICAF scholarship covers up to 80% of the fees. The thing is that I want to make sure about both parties; University of South Wales and UNICAF.

12,635 sterling pound is $18,000. USW is a pretty low-ranking university that often discounts its MBA. Here is a clue to its reputation: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-wales-33680352 .

UNICAF is a London company that markets low-ranking university degrees at a discount into Africa.

So, even if it is low-ranking but it is a real university accredited from the UK, right?

It seems it is a real university, after the UNICAF fynd the fees will be around 30,000 EGP = less than $4,000. So I am really thinking of going for it. What do you think?

Yes, that's a real university. I guess it depends on what you want and how certain the discount is: are you sure they won't discount the start and then increase the prices later. Remember, both the university and the marketing company have to made a surplus on the course somehow.

Also look at the diploma for graduates from the London School of Economics, which is a world-famous school: http://www.lse.ac.uk/study/UOLIP/programmes.aspx

Ok, but is it real or scam?

It is a real university without meaningful international accreditation. Whether or not someone is making a scam out of it depends on how it is presented. If someone says 'this is a world class MBA which will give you the sort of professional advantages of a respected MBA', then they are scamming you. If they say 'this is a degree from one of Europe's most modest, least-known and least-respected universities, but it will give you a British degree' then is it not a scam. Personally, I don't see why anyone would find it then most effective value for money.

So , If i am sure about the scholarship discount , if I only pay 2500 sterling pound then still it is not have an effective value for money and it doesn't worth it ?

That depends on your goals. If you want and MBA-type role from a traditional employer of MBAs then its less useful than the LSE graduate diploma in management.

You seem to have reposted a comment from April. Do you have anything to add?

I am currently doing my MA Education through UNICAF directly and I made the mistake of not doing enough research before going into it. Terrible, I know, but it is what it is. I've made peace with the fact that I'm going to have to go through with it now but I wondered if there is anything you can tell me about UNICAF University that will give me some indication as to how useful this degree is going to be for me? I am currently working in China and wanted to pursue the MA Education to boost my teaching credentials, which at this point only consists of a CELTA Pass B and a Bachelor's Degree (from a reputable university) in an unrelated field. I'm not sure quite what you can offer but I'd love to hear any information you do have on UNICAF, as there is very, very little of it online (a sure warning sign if there ever was one - sadly I didn't take heed)

No, as the discussion here shows. I cannot think of a situation where this would be the best choice.
