This is an entirely new mode of teaching at the University. Students in a traditional setting register once a year for four or five modules that must be taken concurrently. In the online model, we take in new students every eight/sixteen weeks, with six intakes a year. You will, therefore, enrol for a single module at a time and only pay for the module that you are busy with. You will be assessed continuously throughout the module, accumulating your grades as you progress. At the end of the 8 (or 16) week module, upon successful completion, you will register and pay for your next module.
The quality of, and recognition for the fully online qualifications, is the same as with all other UP offerings, in the traditional face-to-face/contact mode of delivery. Since all of UP’s academic programmes are accredited by the Council for Higher Education (CHE), the same rigorous process applies to the online programmes. The benefit of the fully online study option is that students are not required to attend lectures or write exams on campus. Students can conduct their studies online from anywhere, and engage in diverse assessment opportunities throughout the module such as projects, assignments, quizzes, discussion forums, and journals.
