For whom is this programme relevant?

This option is attractive to professionals interested in a short training course on a specific topic, or those interested in a long training course (Postgraduate diploma or MSc degree level) but who are unable to leave their job for the full course duration.

Short online courses

We offer several courses of our Master's programme as online courses. The online courses (5 credits) have a weekly study load of 20 to 24 hours. The courses combine self-study with online support by ITC staff. The general approach is task-based learning that blends theory and practice. Participants access the course material through the internet. All materials and (most of) the software will be provided online within ITC’s digital learning environment Blackboard.

About your diploma

Upon successful completion of this course you will receive a Certificate which will include the name of the course.

Along with your Certificate you will receive a Course Record providing all the subjects studied as part of the course. It states: the course code, subject, ECTS credits, exam date, location and the mark awarded.

If you decide to follow a full Postgraduate or Master's course at ITC, and after approval of the Examination Board, you will be exempted from the course(s) you followed successfully as an online course.
