To support and grow self-regulated learners pursuing online degrees using a blended learning approach.
Scalabrini Centre’s UpLearn programme forms part of the Global Education Movement (GEM) an initiative launched by Southern New Hampshire University (SNHU) to provide tuition scholarships to a select number of academically strong candidates to enroll in Associates and Bachelor’s degree programmes.
The Associate of Science (AS) programme is a rigorous two-year academic programme which requires a high-level of commitment and academic ability. Students in this programme must complete up to 120 projects within the two-year programme. Competencies gained from this programme are diverse and include Mathematics, English, Communications, Philosophy, Economics, History, Interdisciplinary Studies, Management and Social Sciences.
Students who complete the AS programme in the 2-year scholarship time are eligible to apply for the Bachelor of Arts (BA) programme. The BA programme allows students to specialise in Business Communications, Logistics and Operations or Healthcare Management. This programme requires a high level of academic ability and self motivation.
Admission to both programmes are subject to scholarship availability and student’s academic ability. Opportunities to develop the necessary academic, personal and professional skills needed for success in the academic programmes offered at UpLearn are provided through other programmes at Scalabrini Centre.

Coaching is designed to be a source of consistency, security, accountability and motivation for students. Coaches not only monitor student progress, but also aim to equip students with the necessary life habits and skills needed to ensure academic success. Through regular meetings, students are guided to realize potential solutions to problems, create realistic study schedules and targets, and overcome challenges in the way of academic and personal success. Transference of academic support skills within the domains of time-management, self-management, environmental management, and resource management are core components of the coaching relationship and function. In supporting a student holistically with their academic progress, academic coaches are responsible for ensuring that appropriate academic interventions are implemented when needed and that a student is connected to and informed of available resources. UpLearn academic coaches are also trained to facilitate psycho-social referrals that extend beyond the scope and capacity of the academic coach, including referrals related to individual counselling, group therapy, welfare, paralegal assistance and employment access.
