Meet Some of Our Students
Free Online Information Session (for online and on campus)
We invite you to learn more about obtaining your postgraduate qualification in GMP by attending our free online information session on 24 October, 2023 from 5:00 PM - 6:00PM (Sydney time).
Online learning is a practical option for students unable to attend campus due to work commitments or distance. This is a flexible mode of learning in which students study when it suits them. Studying online does not mean that the student is isolated from the teacher or from the learning community. A variety of strategies are used to provide an environment for learning and to foster student-student collaboration.
Online students will learn through online content comprising of videos, set reading, directed research, activities and self-check quizzes. This independent learning will be supported by group learning experiences using online discussions, in which ideas and concepts can be tested and refined. In addition, online students will have regular access to the class teacher via online ‘open office’ hours.
Assessment is conducted throughout the semester and comprises tasks such as contribution to online discussions, written and/or oral reports, group projects, presentations via online conferencing and written exams.
Each subject is structured as a number of modules that typically cover a two-week period. Materials are made available on UTS’ online learning system which can be accessed from your computer, tablet or mobile device, so you can learn anywhere, anytime.
Each subject will require approximately 3-6 hours per week of study. Time will vary depending on student familiarity with the subject matter. Additional time may be needed to complete assessments.
