UNIEC (UNITAR Education Core) is the UNITAR’s Holistic Innovative Learning which is the essence of UNITAR’s teaching and learning.

UNITAR is on ‘blended-learning’ mode in which students’ learning will be the mixture of face-to-face interaction (known as UNIEC Face) and also online interaction (UNIEC Virtual) plus UNIEC Profiling where they can customized they own learning environment. Our lecturers are also implementing different ways of teaching method for example ‘flipped classroom’ in which students will review their lesson before the start of the class so that they will have more time to do hands-on activities under the lecturer’s guidance. Thus, engagement of learning encompass different methods and strategies as part of UNIEC learning environment.
