2What is Online Learning?

Online Learning provides you with the same programmme offered on campus, through a virtual learning platform.  This allows you to study from the comfort of your home but more importantly, it saves you money (since you do not have to travel or bear the costs of accommodation in a foreign country) while at the same time allowing you to obtain a recognised degree from a prestigious UK or US institution.

3What is a Virtual Learning Environment?

A Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) is a system for delivering learning materials to students via the web. These systems include assessment, student tracking, collaboration and communication tools for interfacing with other students and tutors.  When you enrol onto a programme, you will be sent the information you need to access the VLE and detailed instructions how to use it.  It's really very easy!

4How do I apply?

The procedure is very simple.  All you have to do is:
- Visit our website and identify the programme that interests you.
- Fill in the application form.  Our agents are here to help you every step of the way.
- Your application will be sent to the relevant institution for assessment and if accepted, you will be sent detailed information to enrol to the programme or course along with your payment invoice.

5What is the programme fee?

All fees are mentioned on our website for each programme at the bottom of the programme description page.


6How do I pay?

Please refer to our 'Enrolment & Fees' section on this website.  All payments are made to RITE Education Associates Ltd.

7What if I change my mind after I have paid?

You have 14 days within which you can change your mind and receive a refund minus a £100 administration fee and any application/registration fees required by the institution. After 14 days there is no refund.  All refunds are handled by and processed by RITE Education Associates Ltd.

8Are the degrees recognised?

Yes.  We only work with recognised and accredited institutions.  Your degree is awarded directly by the institution and has the same value as similar degrees awarded for oncampus programmes.

9Can I take more than one programme at the same time?

You can do this but we highly recommend that you study for one programme at a time.  However, we will gladly discuss this with you and together decide what is best for you.

10How do you choose the institutions you work with?

The Global Online Academy selects the best programmes from around the world that can provide our students with high quality education at affordable prices.  So we select our institutions based on: quality, affordability and recognition of degrees.
