Methodology

The methodology of this programme is adapted to the e-learning model. Our classes are asynchronous, i.e. it is not necessary to be in the campus on a determined schedule. This model is extremely flexible allowing you to study around existing work and family commitments. 

The Expert Certificate consists of 5 modules, with a duration of one month each. You will find the course content available from day one. The student must submit the assignments proposed by the teacher, as well as the questionnaires that they may contain.

The distance learning model combines teaching through virtual classroom, tutorial support and online self-learning.

The programme is developed in a continuous evaluation. The assessment of each module can be made up of tutor-marked assignments, usually essay or short-answer questions, clinical cases, etc. and computer-marked assignments which are made up of a series of questions and you choose the answers from a given selection. 

The students of the programme are connected and in constant communication through the discussion forums and the internal messaging of the virtual campus itself. This will help them solve doubts by exchanging knowledge and acquiring greater skills when it comes to passing the course.

Accreditation

Optional recognition

The students have the option to include in their certificate the recognition of the Hague Apostille. A country that signs the Hague Convention recognizes the legal effectiveness of a public document issued in another country that signs the Convention.

If the convention applies between two countries, such apostille is sufficient to certify a document’s validity, and removes the need for double-certification, by the originating country and then by the receiving country.

 

To acquire it, consult us .
