Assessments (tests) and research

Assessment in Global Studies is a very straightforward process:
  • After completing an online module, you will have an online assessment to complete. This assessment contains 30 multiple-choice questions. You will have one hour to complete these questions, which are answered in blocks of five, so you will have plenty of time to review and edit your answers. After an hour, the test will automatically time out.
  • After completing the test, your results will be displayed instantly. If you have passed, you will receive a Certificate of Completion. If you are unsuccessful, you will receive a ‘referral’ notification where you will be told how to retake the unit assessment. You can complete these modules at your own pace, as there is no deadline for completing the course.
  • When the online modules have been successfully completed, you will then be able to take final written assignments offered by Global Studies which test your knowledge and understanding of the modules. The tasks are approximately 5,000-8,000 words each. Students are provided with support in units and assignments via the ‘Teacher’ section of the learning platform. After successful completion of these eight assignments, you will receive your degree from the awarding organization OFQUAL.
  • You will then be eligible to apply for progression to a further course through a recognized UK university on campus or via distance learning.

Frequently Asked Questions

Frequently asked questions about this course
Are there any English language requirements?

For students who are outside the UK or whose mother tongue is not English, we recommend taking an IELTS course to improve your language to level 5.5 or above. This can be done alongside your studies on one of our courses. In the event that your level of English is weak, we will provide you with an integrated English language educational program to help you reach advanced levels in English.

Do I need any previous experience and qualifications?

You will need an IELTS score of at least 5.5 or higher on completion of your chosen higher education programme. You can study an English language course together with a GS course. At Level 4/5 you will need a full secondary education to be eligible to enroll on the course, and universities will require a minimum age before enrolling at the university.
