Applications are now open for admission to the Open Postgraduate Programme, a pioneering initiative among Valencia Region universities to update knowledge and promote flexible training
Alicante. Thursday 25 July 2019
The University of Alicante has implemented a novel initiative for students to take individual subjects from Master’s degrees without having to enrol in a whole programme, in an effort to meet training demands. Applications are open until 20 September.
The Office of the Vice President for Studies Planning and Training Actions has launched the Open Postgraduate Programme, a pioneering initiative in the Valencia Region aimed at those who cannot undertake a complete Master’s programme due to the dedication required or the need to improve their training in different knowledge areas, according to Office for Postgraduate Studies, Special Courses and Lifelong Learning director Aurora Ribes.
She highlighted the UA’s commitment to flexible training and how the Office of the Vice President intends to match the training offer to the current needs and demands of potential students, allowing them to design their own bespoke curriculum without having to enrol in a whole degree.
The Open Postgraduate Programme aims to offer postgraduate training to all graduates wishing to learn about specific techniques or disciplines that are part of current curricula, provided that there are places available. The Programme comprises a range of Master's degree subjects students can enrol in, thus promoting lifelong learning.
Those interested can enrol in a maximum of 60 ECTS credits per academic year and a minimum of one subject. Students can also obtain an official transcript of records containing the names and number of credits of courses taken, examination sessions and marks. After completing 60 ECTS credits, students can equally apply for admission to a PhD programme if they wish to receive research training.
