Excellence through Distance Learning for Mature Students  

 

Earning Your Degree

Robertstown University offers Associate, Bachelor, Masters and Doctorate Degrees. The most popular degrees are in Education, Psychology, Religion, Computer Science & Technology, Business and Health Science. However, because degrees are individually designed for students they are offered in almost all areas.

Robertstown University also offers a High School Diploma Program through Branford Academy College Preparatory High School and Vocational Diplomas and Certifications.

Our degree programs differ from other similar undergraduate and graduate programs worldwide because most other programs require at least a minimal residency at the campus.  Robertstown recognizes numerous studies that show that independent learning is at least as effective as learning on campus. 

 RU degrees are 100% non-residential. allowing all students to earn a Certificate, Associate, Bachelor, Master and Doctorate Degrees through Assessment, Research and/or Examination from anywhere in the world.

 

The student may design his or her own method to complete courses within the degree program of his/her choice through:

1. Portfolio Assessment portfolio assessment of knowledge acquired through experience and prior learning.

2. Competency Exams “testing out”, passing online exams.

3. Coursework/Research independent study, academic projects, and assignments.

4. Accelerated Distance Learning for beginning students and those who wish to continue their education.

Through Internet technology, any person committed to learning, can study any subject through independent study, research practice and experience.

Robertstown University accepts transfer credits for work completed at other institutions of higher education. 

Doctoral program applicants who hold a master's degree awarded by an approved institution of higher education, or equivalent, and plan to pursue a major in the same field as their master's degree will be granted 30 credits of transfer credit toward their doctoral program. Additional credit may be granted at the discretion of the faculty, based on information obtained during the assessment process.

 

Operation of the Program

Entry to the Robertstown University Graduate program is based on the applicant’s potential to achieve success in their chosen course of study. In making this assessment the only relevant factors will be the applicant’s aptitude. No applicant will receive less favorable treatment on the grounds of sex, sexual orientation, marital status, religion, social class, age, disability, color, race nationality, or ethnic or national origins. The only conditions of entry that will be imposed in any case will be justifiable on academic grounds.

Liberian applicants will be granted scholarships on a case by case basis and given preference in all cases of entrance.

 

Each student is assigned an Advisor. Students and Advisors communicate via email.

Some programs require no course work following the English and Australian model.  The students, under the supervision of the Advisor/Professor will use texts, portfolio assessment, online courses, and libraries local to the students and electronic libraries and databases.
