Home Study

 

A good education should teach HOW to think, rather than WHAT to think.

 

The BIU home study guide explains our effective pedagogical approach, how to organize your studies, how we conduct the exams, and many useful online learning tips.

We consider you mature enough to feel free to follow Bircham International University home study guidelines, or decide your own method of home study, as long as you fulfill the requirements outlined in the distance learning degree program. Whatever method you choose, take care not to demolish the mental processes of learning and assimilation outlined by the BIU home study pedagogy. More info...

Bircham International University believes in the self-organization of the home study learning process.

Although home study free schedule proves to be the best choice, Bircham International University may provide you with a home study fixed schedule of assignments in order to help you organize your studies through the establishment of weekly goals. More info...

 

 

Duration

 

For a program of 21 credits, the estimated time for completion is 21 weeks. For 45 credits, the estimated time for completion will be 45 weeks, and so on. Calculations are approximate. The length of each distance learning degree program is calculated based on an average of 15 hours of learning per week. It also depends on the number of validated credits from previous knowledge and the level of commitment to the studies. More info...

 

 

Online Learning

 

Effective online learning: The key to integrate the "know-how" of any specialization in our mind lies in understanding WHAT and HOW we study.

 

WHAT:
Textbooks specifically selected and supervised by Bircham International University constitute the core element of every online learning course. These books are chosen for their clear, interesting, and in-depth content. They encourage critical thinking and the practical application of the acquired knowledge. BIU adopts the best available list of published textbooks in an attempt to meet the projected online learning outcomes from each distance degree program.

HOW:
It is necessary to structure an effective online learning approach and apply it to the selected textbooks, in order to transform the raw material from the textbook into useful processed information. The BIU pedagogy is a good example of how to achieve this goal. More info...

 

Now that you have the books...
How do you get started?

You have received the textbooks and the assignments instructions...
You are sitting at your desk and then what? More info...

 

Bircham International University offers a series of concise yet effective online learning tips that can help to improve intellectual performance. You are invited to adapt these online learning tips in what you consider best fit your usual home study habits.

The pillars of any effective online learning are: reading, comprehension, and memorization. More info...

What is important is what you know, and not how much you should study, or how you have acquired that knowledge. A distance learning university should make things easy and not create obstacles.
