You have been contemplating about enrolling in an Online Programme. You know it’s a best fit for your busy professional life and agree with the convenience of not leaving your home and family to get that Masters. But there are some things, you are still not sure of. As a former education advisor, I have come across several questions that prospective students ask, before they get started on the educational adventure. As you search for the right programme for your career advancement, you may also have similar questions about the course and the University. Here are the top 5 for you:
- Is the University Recognised and Accredited? Yes. Our courses are held in partnership with the University of Cumbria, University of Salford and York St John University and are recognised worldwide. The degrees awarded by our Partner Universities are fully recognised by the British Government. The Universities are duly listed on the UK Department for Business, Innovation and Skills list of recognised UK awarding institutions. Graduates receive the same recognised degree from the University as a full time student receives.
2. Can I complete the programme in One Year? Yes. the minimum duration to complete the programme is one year. Depending upon your chosen course, maximum duration is 3 years to 5 years.
3. Do I have to be Online at Specific times? and are there any group activities/discussions?
No. Our programmes are specially designed for busy professionals.
All the lectures are available on your Online Campus portal that can be accessed anytime, from anywhere in the world. The students are assessed based on assignments submitted during / at the end of each module, which must be submitted before their respective deadlines.
4. Fees/ Scholarship/ Finance
Can the fees be paid in instalments and what are the payment plans? Is there a provision for paying per module or per semester?
The fees can be paid in interest free instalments. Once you receive the admission offer, you are required to pay 25% of the course fees. The remaining amount can be paid in 12 monthly instalments. The fees for the residential module if any, need to be paid only when you register for this module. At present, we do not have a provision to pay per module or per semester.
