Students and course-takers have mid-module assessments and guidance from their supervisors. They help students improve their performance. If the course is successfully completed, students will earn credits. After that, they will have a course review exercise which is followed by the next level of learning in the programme. Students will get qualified after completing certain number of modules i.e. they are treated at par with the students that learn through regular leaning.
