Universal Service Universal Service USPF-logo Provision FundProvision Fund

Tertiary Institutions Knowledge Center (TIKC) Project is one of the initiatives of the Universal Service Provision Fund aimed at facilitating bandwidth connectivity and installation of ICT devices and peripherals in selected tertiary institutions.

The TIKC project will also serve as ICT centre in each selected tertiary institution. The ICT centre will be an avenue for students to acquire and improve their ICT skills e.g. application development and web design etc. This will also give attention to technology startups that could be further trained and mentored to develop technology solutions that will be commercially viable to attract financial growth and create job opportunities for the up-coming generation.


TIKC is designed to promote ICT in teaching and learning at tertiary institutions and their immediate communities. It is considered strategic to the overall objective of Connectivity for Development (C4D) and a catalyst for deepening broadband penetration.


Service Model

Similar to other Access Projects, TIKC is fully funded by the USPF, although the beneficiary institutions are required to provide suitable space for the tools. Implementers are engaged through open competitive bidding to deploy the facility on behalf of the USPF.


The following are some benefits of TIKC:

    • Personalised learning
    • Enhanced research
    • Better student-teacher engagement
    • Access to remote learning resources
