Distance Learning

 Distance Learning

​Distance learning courses are flexible and modular courses that do not provide an academic degree. They are designed to suit the needs of professionals in the labour market and to narrow the gap between university and society. The aim of these courses is to provide education and on-going training for all those involved in lifelong learning. This is a pro-rector initiative for New Education Projects, which has arisen as a result of the broadening educational strategy to enable UMinho to reach new audiences.

The range of UMinho distance learning courses includes resources and learning sequences offered by specialised teachers. These teachers are responsible for the scientific organisation, moderation and assessment of students.

According to UMinho’s distance learning model, learning activities are flexible and based on a learner-centred approach. This provides for student freedom of choice in developing and designing their own curricula among different courses and, as an option, in obtaining ECTS credits. The European Credits Transfer System (ECTS) provides an equivalence between curriculum units (or parts) belonging to cycles of studies conferring bachelors, masters and doctoral degrees.
