HOW DALC got ignorant Kenyans to sign with Irish University.

After completing your Graduate or PostGraduate Diploma, DALC offers you a chance to "upgrade" your diploma to a full Bachelors or Masters Degree. According to DALC's website,the upgrade is guaranteed with various UK universities. The funny thing is that to get further information, DALC requires you to enquire from a yahoo address (creativeafrica2004@yahoo.com). This is rather strange as no legit education institution or agent of a genuine university would operate from yahoo but hey! DALC is creative.

I tried to send an email to the yahoo address displayed on DALC's website but it bounced back and then...I found a bitter graduate of Irish university who has the emails from 2006 when he signed up.So here goes the email from Irish University.

We have established that you are doing a course with Cambridge Association of Managers (CAM) or Oxford Association of Management (OXIM).

IIU recognizes diplomas from the above two professional bodies and we would like to know if you wish to consider IIU as an upgrading university for your diploma.

We also recognize other qualifications like ABE, ICM, LCCI, ACCA, ABAC, IMIS, etc.

If you would like to know more about upgrades of these other qualifications, or any other qualifications that you might possess, please send to us an email to: creativeafrica2004@yahoo.com
