MIU Online FAQ
What is MIU’s online Program?
What courses can be taken online at MIU?
All of Marconi’s undergraduate and postgraduate courses may be taken online. Only the Intensive English course is held exclusively on campus in Miami.
What does it mean to take a university degree “online”?
An “online” degree means that instead of attending classes in person, you will be able to complete your degree online without having to visit the campus, giving you the flexibility to create your own schedule and study while you work. You will still participate and interact with other students, only instead of attending a class in person it will be through weekly online assignments and discussion forums.
How do the online classes work?
Online classes are quite similar to traditional classroom-based courses. You’ll receive a course structure at the beginning of the term so you’ll know what to expect. All of your classes – lectures, tutorials, and group work with other students – as well as your course materials, will be available through the virtual learning environment.
Is an online degree respected as much as a traditional degree?
The online degrees at MIU are the same high-quality programs that are offered on campus, with the same curriculum and academic rigor, giving you the flexibility to create your own schedule and study while you work.
Will my degree certificate and academic transcript say that I studied online?
No, your degree certificate and academic transcript will not specify that you studied your course online, it will simply say the name of the degree you studied and the qualification you received.
How much contact will I have with my teacher in an online course?
You may contact your teacher as you need, using the web-based conferencing system or electronic mail. In addition, each student will be assigned a personal tutor who provides a personalized orientation and helps you organize and prioritize your study and practical activities. The tutor will motivate you to achieve your objectives within the established time frame, help you identify any problems and plan specific activities in collaboration with the teachers.
What kind of assignments are typical for an online course?
Assignments vary throughout the programs. Students are usually required to post in the group discussion each week, and may need to complete individual or group projects and give presentations.
How long does an online degree take? Can I do it faster than a traditional degree?
Online courses have the same credit load as on campus courses, so they take the same amount of time to complete. There is more flexibility, however, in how you organize your week and when you complete your study.
Can I work full time and still do my degree online?
Yes! These degrees are designed so that you can study and work at the same time. In fact, 95% of all our online students work and study at the same time.
