A World-Class Online Institution for Aspiring Individuals : Warnborough College
Warnborough College: A World-Class Institution with Online Options
Warnborough is a world-class online distance learning institution with a recognized reputation festooned with accolades. Over the last ten years more and more universities are offering qualifications online. Distance Learning was ‘laughed at’ twenty years ago by established universities that ‘it would never take off’. These institutions were lacking in vision despite the fact that correspondence courses have been offered since Victorian times, enabling students from around the world to gain a recognised qualification. Even Australia had its ‘Radio Classroom’ for those students living in the ‘outback’ . Learning at a distance is not new. What is new are the tools that enable students to become online learners. Notebooks, tablets, mobile phones provide learning ‘on demand’ at any time & from anywhere.
Warnborough College: 21 Years of Online Success
Warnborough College started its online learning program in 1997, and since then it has grown rapidly offering short courses for a certificate or diploma to offering full degree programmes at the undergraduate and graduate levels. The Warnborough College Graduate Research Centre in Dublin is highly competitive and scholars work with a personal mentor for research supervision. Communication is arranged by mutual convenience and assignments/projects agreed that meet the interest of the researcher. There are twelve intakes per year. Matriculation is the 1st of each month. Researchers are mostly mature adults, busy professionals looking to upgrade their knowledge, skills and status. Recognised Prior Learn (RPL) and Advanced Placement (AP) are taken into consideration through 'competencies assessment' of each candidate. This lowers fees so they are affordable and there are payment plans and scholarships.
