You’ve made the final decision of studying abroad and becoming an international student. Now you just need to do your research and apply for a university online. Are you afraid to begin the process and keep postponing it? Well, no need to stress out! The sooner you start searching for information and begin the application process for a university degree, the higher the chances you will be accepted by one or more international universities that you dream about.
On the other hand, higher education is being pummeled by the Covid-19 pandemic. Pre-pandemic, there was already acknowledgement that the traditional higher education business model is seriously challenged. But Fall 2020 marks an inflection point as students, educators, and government leaders alike scrutinize the price and value proposition of higher education through the new lens of traditional classroom versus multiple modes of digital delivery.
At CIS Endicott we can help you all along the selection and education process.
What brought us here
A number of elite universities have substantially discounted tuition for their fully online experience, highlighting pricing pressures. This comes after a decade of growth in postsecondary alternatives.
This moment is to be remembered as a critical turning point between the “time before,” when analog on-campus degree-focused learning was the default, to the “time after,” when digital, online, career-focused learning became the fulcrum of competition between institutions.
As in many other economic sectors, the digital transformation of postsecondary education is being increasingly driven by start-up companies and private capital. But unlike other industries education has lagged behind in having a capitalized “industry” to support it.
We know how important it is for you to continue your studies, that’s why we are offering the best solutions for every student. The CIS personnel does everything to ensure that our students are comfortable and we guide them through what will ultimately be one of the biggest events of their lives in an exceedingly international setting.
The benefits of distance learning
Studying in a university online through distance learning gives you a number of benefits:
- You can fit your study around your work and home life
- You decide exactly when and where you study
- You can get a degree from anywhere in the world
- Distance learning courses often cost less than full-time degrees, so you save money
The beauty of online courses or distance learning is that you can do it from anywhere
Online learning became default in 2020, but the approach most people are employing is simple “remote learning” via live Zoom classes, for instance. However, in the multibillion-dollar market for fully online courses and degrees, a variety of powerful new platforms and technologies have emerged, grounded in cloud computing, enormous datasets, and artificial intelligence.
Machine learning, SMS messaging and AI are also having a growing impact in optimizing student services and support. Many universities begin to deploy blended and fully AI-based chatbots to support students and answer questions.
Applying to an online degree from anywhere in the world
At CIS Endicott we know that the pandemic has changed the panoramic and we also are aware that many international students will not be able to travel to begin their university adventure due to travel restrictions. This is the reason why we have launched a Distance Learning Program that allows students to start the University 100% online through our virtual platform.
CIS’s Distance Learning Program has been created for those international students who could not travel during Covid 19 to start their studies in a university. After the first semester in this program, the student can either continue the on-campus education at CIS Endicott Madrid or transfer the credits obtained to any other accredited American University in the world.
CIS Endicott program is taught through our virtual platform and the academic material with all the recorded classes will be accessible to the student at any time and from any device that has internet connection.
Besides, every 15 days the student will carry out live sessions with their tutor or professor to answer questions and solve exercises, presentations and case studies.
CIS Endicott has two main courses in the Distance Learning program: Business and Marketing Communication, each one with its studying programming. If you are curious to know more about it, here you can find more information.
CIS Endicott can open you any door to earn an American degree, and we offer unrivalled support along the way. Our distance learning program combines asynchronous learning and live-stream sessions with our professors and academic tutors. This gives you the huge advantage of studying in your own time with full support from our faculty and staff. We can make your future much brighter, all you have to do is bring your willingness to learn with CIS. We are waiting for you.
