What to Expect
What it’s like to study with us?
Here are some things you should know before you begin your studies.
Studying online means that you'll do the same coursework and assessments as the regular students, but you'll study where you want, have more flexibility with your time, and may use different technology and methods to complete your work. Course content may include online classes, videos, audios, discussion boards, Skype conferencing, and more. Students submit regular assignments including homework, personal practice, and other tasks. At the end of each course students have online exams. During the year online students can make a journey to attend retreats and seminars, where they can meet their peers and professors in person and also pass their exams.
Distance learning requires a substantial amount of written and web communication. Online courses require you to engage regularly in web discussions, skype conferencing and collaborative work with classmates. You should also fell free to contact your teachers, handlers and mentors by e-mail if you have any questions on the course subject or on your personal practice. We also have online forum when you can meet your classmates and share your inspiration.
Motivation and Self-discipline
