Online Course Support Academic Advising Centre

With the freedom that online education brings, CityVarsity Online learners can upskill in their own time, from almost anywhere on earth. Well, anywhere where the internet is accessible, that is. But although our learners may roam far and wide, they are never far out of our mind. Each course is assigned their own academic advisor from our Academic Advising Centre (AAC), who is ready and waiting to guide and assist their learners throughout their online learning experience.

Learners can expect their academic advisors to answer questions, solve issues and provide further clarification on any aspects of the course. As a service offered as part of the course, learners can request a chat via email with their AAC and will be called back to assist with anything course related.

Online Course Delivery and Assessments

CityVarsity Online Courses are designed and delivered by the course lecturers themselves, which will allow our students the opportunity to engage with these industry experts. The subject matter specialists present their courses through module notes and short videos that are always accessible via the Online Learning Studio. Learner’s can simply log in and continue learning where they left off.

Throughout the courses, learners are encouraged to refer to supporting external content for a broader understanding of the topics, and to engage in interactive forum discussions between fellow students, promoting both independent and shared learning.

Quizzes throughout each course allow learners to test their own grasp of each module, and possibly highlight areas of misunderstanding that can be discussed with their academic advisor.

Each module is accompanied by an assignment, which may be made up of a number of tasks. Learners are required to submit their assignments for assessment by the supplied deadlines, and can expect timely feedback direct from their academic advisor.
