Who We Are and What We Do
Guide Through Online Higher Education at EduWW Online Business Academy
Education World Wide rounds up its educational offer for students with affordable and accredited higher education study programs. Online Level Qualifications fast-track students to a university qualification, while complete study programs enable them to get a Bachelor’s or Master’s Degree in the fields of Business or IT & Computing. All higher education programs that we offer originate in the UK and are accredited by a UK educational system’s respectable standards.
What Are Level Qualifications?
Level qualifications are one-year academic programs that are equivalent to each year at a university. For example, Level 4 is equal to the first year of a university. It was the UK that first introduced Level Qualifications. That form of studying makes things simpler for those students who can’t commit to studying three or five years in continuation, regardless of the reason why they can’t study regularly.
Here is an example. You enrolled in your Bachelor’s studies, and you have successfully finalized the first year. However, you lack the money for the second year, and you have to start working. When you apply for a job, your potential employer will see you only as a high school graduate. They will not recognize the knowledge and skills you gained in your first year of studies because you don’t have a diploma that proves your qualifications.
Studying through Levels successfully solves that problem, enabling students to get their qualifications recognized for each year. Sounds too good to be true, and you are still skeptical? Ok, search any of the Level qualifications that we are offering on LinkedIn, and you’ll see how many professionals gained their education in this way.
How do Level Qualifications work?
These one-year study programs are a substitution for a year at a university. They are usually delivered online and therefore enable you to enjoy total flexibility. Once you finalize this program, you receive a diploma. For example, a person with a Level 4 Diploma can proceed to Level 5, but they can also apply to a university and go directly to the second year of study.
With Level Qualifications, you can gain knowledge and skills in the rank of those who studied Bachelor or Master programs. However, you can also get BA and MBA Honours Degrees. The below illustration explains how everything works.
One System, Complete Learning
Are Level Qualifications Legitimate?
Level Qualifications are entirely legitimate, regulated, and recognized by educational institutions and employers, not just across Europe but worldwide. For a Level Qualification to be regulated, it has to be accredited by an awarding body. In the UK operate many awarding bodies that regulate Level Qualifications for different areas.
EduWW Online Business Academy is certified to provide Level Qualifications awarded by the Awards for Training and Higher Education (ATHE). Additionally, ATHE is regulated by the Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (OFQUAL). Upon finalization of a Level, a student receives a Diploma issued by the ATHE.
Bachelor and Master Studies at Online Business Academy
EduWW Online Business Academy often gets confused for a university, but we are an online education provider. In that sense, we are more close to Coursera and Udemy than we are to any University. However, we offer active university programs from UK Universities. A student is not enrolling in an individual course or outdated university programs. They are enrolling in a fully updated and active study program. These programs are currently available at a university as well.
What is the difference? By opting to study with the Online Business Academy, you get to enjoy the complete flexibility of online learning. These programs are distributed through our online learning platform, an interactive and arranged system suitable for individual learning. All learning materials are at your disposal 24/7, and you can access them any time you want.
Through our system, you can study some of the most quality UK study programs regardless of where you live. You can enroll from any part of the world. Another advantage of studying with Online Business Academy is that you are paying way lower tuition fees than at an on-campus university.
EduWW Online Business Academy has partnered up with many UK Universities, and we are licensed to offer their online study programs. Check the full list of our university partners. After successfully completing Bachelor or Master studies, our students receive a diploma from a university whose program they followed. Therefore, their diploma will have the same value as a diploma of a student studying on-campus. No difference.
UK higher education is highly valued and respected in the entire world. Owning a diploma from a British university will enable you to apply for jobs globally. The knowledge and practical skills you’ll gain will provide you with qualifications and competitiveness in the job market.
The Benefits of Studying at Online Business Academy
Studying online is individual, flexible, self-paced, more affordable, and therefore more convenient. We will explain what each of these benefits means.
When we say that the program is individual, it means that you are learning alone because we do not have group classes. As an Online Business Academy student, you will have a profile on our online learning platform and access to complete learning material. This individuality also allows you to create a personal learning plan instead of following one institution’s imposed.
Given that you can access the learning material 24/7, you can literally learn whenever you want. Also, you can learn from the comfort of your home or any other place you find comfortable, and there is no need to come to a physical location. This flexibility enables you to organize your studies according to your other obligations. You can have a job, an active social life, you can travel around the world, and still do your academic assignments because everything is online and available to you at all times. Of course, as long as you have a computer or laptop and a stable internet connection.
Self-paced is connected to individual learning in a way. Since you are creating your personal learning plan, you can absolutely learn in your own tempo. It is your choice when you will start learning a particular module and how long you will stay on it. In other words, you can take as much time as you need to master a specific module or to do a particular assignment. Likewise, you are entirely free to take tests whenever it suits you since we do not predefine the tests’ dates.
The tuition fee at Online Business Academy is much more affordable than the same program’s tuition fee at an on-campus university. Our tuition fees cover everything, and we do not impose any additional costs on students. Additionally, we allow students to pay the tuition fee in monthly installments, which significantly unburdens their budget.
The tuition fee includes:
- 24/7 access to the online learning platform
- Complete learning material
- Consultations with our academic consultant
- Mentorship on-demand
- Technical support on the platform
Online Business Academy Credentials
As a respectable online education provider on an international level, Online Business Academy adopted high industry standards. We possess all necessary documentation and approvals for offering and providing higher education programs.
All Online Business Academy Level Qualifications are regulated by the Office of Qualifications and Examinations Regulation (OFQUAL). That is a non-government department responsible for regulating qualifications, exams, and tests in England and Northern Ireland. Ofqual is sort of a “watchdog” that maintains standards and confidence in education.
The programs and qualifications that we offer are accredited by the Awards for Training and Higher Education (ATHE). The ATHE is a global awarding body under Ofqual and the other UK and international regulators. Being accredited and regulated by OFQUAL and the ATHE ensures that our students are studying accredited programs and are gaining internationally accepted diplomas.
Online Business Academy uses the Regulated Qualification Framework (RQF) that standardizes the approach to qualifications. This framework helps people to understand how higher education qualifications are compared to each other based on their size and complexity.
Additionally, we use European Qualification Framework (EQF). EQF translates national qualifications from various countries into a single framework that is recognized and readable across Europe. This framework helps that the previous education of our students is recognized to a certain degree. Therefore you won’t have to repeat your education if you move to a different country, whether for further learning or career-wise.
The International Standard Classification of Education (ISCED), established by UNESCO, is another framework that ensures the comparability of different education systems. With ISCED, all educational activities and programs are sorted into internationally accepted categories. Therefore, those ISCED categories are globally recognized.
