What happened to the Doctor of Business Administration (DBA) Triple Award ( BU, VERN and UCAM) and the Doctor of Education (“EdD”) Dual Award ( BU and UCAM) programmes?
Our DBA Triple Award and EdD Dual Award were phased out in September 2022 due to new legislation in Spain that restricts universities from entering joint awards at the Doctoral level.
Therefore, we are no longer offering the DBA Triple Award (BU, VERN & UCAM) and the EdD Dual Award (BU & UCAM).
However, we are still offering the DBA Dual Award (BU & VERN).
Please be reassured that all students registered prior to the teach-out will be allowed to complete the programme within the stipulated time.
For further enquiries or clarifications, please email us at email@example.com, and we will be glad to assist you.
How soon can I begin?
Your application will be assessed by our Academic team and we will notify you once your application has been approved.
Our intakes for the Doctorate level programmes are every once in two months , and intakes for the Master and Bachelor degrees commence monthly, so you can begin your programme as soon as you have been accepted and your initial payment has reached our account.
For further enquiries or clarifications, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we will be glad to walk you through the process.
Is there a timetable I need to adhere to?
We generally do not have a set timetable which requires our learners to log in at fixed times every day. Our programmes are taught in a web-based learning environment, and discussion boards are used to ensure that learners can access their programmes at their convenience.
However, some programmes may involve group work. For these programmes, you will be expected to work with your fellow learners. At the start of your programme, your tutor will set a timetable outlining activities that need to be completed and the date of submission.
All applications must be submitted at least 2 weeks prior to the commencement date.
Can I enrol for more than one programme at a time?
You are, of course, welcome to enrol for more than one programme at the same time. However, please be aware of the amount of learning time required to complete each module. To get the best out of our programmes, we advise being mindful of the expected programme load when you enrol.
If you are unsure about which programme to apply for, please contact us at email@example.com
Can I take time off during a programme?
If you wish to take time off during your studies, for example, for medical reasons, please make sure to inform your tutor as soon as possible.
Such requests can be accommodated but you will need to take note of your assessment deadlines etc. and catch up upon return.
Will I be provided with textbooks?
You will not receive any textbooks. All programme notes created by your tutor will be available online for use. In addition to an e-library, we will provide an online support list of recommended e-book reads and where you can find them.
Why do distance learning at Brittany Université?
E-learning has proven itself by transforming the landscape of learning and development from the days of the traditional mode of learning in a classroom to a more creative, transformative, adaptable, and accessible medium for learning. There is clear evidence of the four key benefits that e-learning brings:
- faster delivery
- lower costs
- more effective and flexible learning
- lower environmental impact
Brittany Université aims to facilitate a student’s success in distance learning programmes by providing and promoting an environment of equal opportunity that allows graduates to be employed with the necessary knowledge and skills.
How much time should I devote to each module?
This depends on the number of credits allocated to a module. We recommend that you work out the number of hours you need to spend by assigning 10 hours of study against each credit. So if a qualification has 30 credits hours, you should spend a total of 300 hours and this includes online tutorials, support classes, preparing for assessments and reading time.
How long should it take for me to complete my Programme?
The Bachelor and Master programmes commence on the 1st of every month. The Doctoral programmes commence on the 1st of the months of January, March, May, July , September and November every year.
This will depend on each programme. Please go to the “Notional Hours” section of the programme. You will find our guide relating to the average time that it should take to complete a programme.
Details of the duration for completion, the minimum time required and the maximum time allowed are found in the Programme Specification for the course you are undertaking. It varies between 3 months and 24 months depending on the programme and level.
How am I assessed, for example, do I have to sit for exams?
Depending on the programme, assessments are based on participation, written assignments and worked based learning projects. You must upload all of your submissions to the online portal. Your online tutor will have direct access to your submissions to assess them.
When will I receive my programme material?
As soon as your payment has been processed, you will be given your log in details and granted access to our online learning platform and the programme materials. The commencement date for your programme will be in your acceptance letter.
