MUGT Lets Students Switch Back and Forth Online or In-Person

All students, when they register for a course they do not have to pick either Online or In-Person. Students will have access to both formats in the same course. Learners of all ages will plan to switch back and forth between attending class in person or online, based on which is more convenient for them on a given week. This system would allow students to miss class for illnesses, childcare, or other commitments without having to feel guilty, because they could complete their coursework online instead.

Some students might plan to take their classes in person, but use the online component to review information if they did not understand something. Others might plan to take most of their classes online, but make a trip to campus if they are struggling with a concept and want to discuss it further with a professor. The new model should not create extra work for professors — they all already teach their courses in both formats.

A complete residential and academic compound will permit the faculty, staff, students, associates and their families to enjoy a rich and broad range of educational programs and social amenities. In providing a strong foundation for all aspects of life and work at the University, the goal is to promote the successful social and cultural integration of its international academic community.
