To complete a degree program at University Road from Bangladesh Campus, students will need to have consistent access to a computer with a reliable internet connection. If students are working on a computer that is not their personal computer and are unable to save documents, it's important also to obtain an external drive. Because there are no mandatory video materials for University Road courses, this drive can be a simple USB drive.
Most of the learning materials that students will be dealing with in their UR courses are compatible with Adobe PDF or Microsoft Office. Our learning platform, Moodle, can be accessed by the latest versions of IE, Safari, Opera, and Chrome, but we recommend that students use the latest version of Mozilla Firefox. Note also that although working through a mobile device is not recommended, it is an option. There is no need to purchase software to study at University Road.
Note that whatever system students choose to use, all files shared with Course Instructors and classmates must be saved in either Microsoft-compatible formats or PDF format.
1. Is it available for students from every country?
2. How many hours per week?
15-20 hours per course per week.
3. How many students per class?
4. Can students fail? Can students re-sit? How many times?
Yes, students can fail, and they are permitted to re-sit – once.
5. Are there opportunities for classes to meet in person?
The university Road does not facilitate face-to-face meetings as this would be impossible due to the global make-up of the classes.
6. How are students graded?
Students will be graded on performance on assignments that can include quizzes, discussion forum submissions, papers, case studies, projects, presentations, and more.
