On-site versus online studies

Studying in the on-site (full-time) programme

Would you like to earn your degree quickly and get a head start in building your international network? Do you have the time and motivation to dedicate yourself to attending class daily?

The first two years of the full-time programme are delivered in intensive consecutive units, each lasting for three weeks.  During each unit you will be able to establish a close relationship with the instructors who come to HELBUS from universities around the world. We encourage student engagement through interactive approaches to teaching and learning. Your academic progress will be tangible from the first weeks of study. The skills and knowledge gained from each study unit will feed forward not only into subsequent study units but also into working life. Each unit presents 150 hours of study including 60 hours of guided learning. Classes are held on campus (Runeberginkatu) Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 12.30 p.m.

Studying in the online programme

Do you need a flexible study plan so that you can combine your studies with working life or your other commitments?

At HELBUS it is possible to take the Bachelor's degree online. The online programme covers the same content as the on-site programme but it also offers students the possibility to integrate one of the study units with their own work experience. The units are all delivered and assessed by the same international faculty as the on-site programme. Students are assessed through regular assignments in every unit during the two-year study period. The programme provides a blend of guided learning hours in weekly sessions held online on Tuesday evenings and self-paced, independent learning on our virtual learning platform. We encourage a sense of community both within the online track and also with our on-site students. The online students do their first two years on the HELBUS online programme. After completing those, they have the option to do the third year on-site at HELBUS or online in one of our partner universities' online programmes. The full Bachelor's degree can be completed within three years through this mode of study.

Delivery mode in the third year

Once you enter the third year of the online programme, you will have two choices: you can transfer to the full-time (on-site) programme or you can continue online at one of our partner universities.  The third-year on-site modules are taught across two terms, following the University of Northampton schedules of delivery and assessment. The teaching faculty consists of experienced higher education professionals with Finnish and international backgrounds.
