How long do I have to complete the Award?
The period in which the Award must be completed is three years form the point of enrolment.
The three year period can include a period as a student on a full-time three year period of undergraduate study or a shorter period of full-time study (e.g. PGCE) plus two years period of completion as an alumnus. However, the total period permitted for completion is three years. In exceptional circumstances intercalation under University Regulations may be permitted. This will be at the discretion of the University.
It is possible for the Award to be completed in two years if those undertaking the Award complete four continuous semester units.
For those undertaking part-time postgraduate course (e.g. Masters or doctorates, PhD or EdD) as fully enrolled students at BGU, no additional years are available (unless there is intercalation); the completion period is three years.
Completion for those enrolled on the Award as an alumnus or as a member of the public are supported through being able to watch podcasts of the filmed lectures if they cannot attend lectures due to circumstances such as distance. Please contact the Award Coordinator, Dr Daphne Whiteoak, for more details.
I can’t find the Associate Award on Blackboard – where is it?
The Associate Award area will not automatically appear on Blackboard. Once Admissions have processed your enrolment request, you will be able to see the Associate Award area. If you are not able to see the Associate Area on Blackboard within one week of enrolling, please contact Andrew Carr in the Admissions Office.
I would like to begin the Award – what are my next steps?
Enrolment will open on Thursday 1st October and close on Friday 13th November 2015. Details of how to enrol will be available on the Associate Award webpage on the BGU website and at the first lecture.
Is there a deadline to decide by?
You can attend the first lecture and then decide to enrol via our Admissions Team by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line BGU Associate Award. You do not have to enrol prior to attending the first two lectures.
