Bournemouth University offers short media courses

“Anyone who stops learning is old, whether they are twenty or eighty. ~ Henri Ford

Education is an ongoing process that we must actively pursue. While you can certainly learn by reading or watching informative videos, there are times when you really need to take a class at a big school in something to understand it better. These days, however, most business owners just don’t have a lot of time to do it. How are you going to go to class at the local university if you work 10 hours a day and then come home with the family?

This is the question the University of Bournemouth has just answered with its Mix Tape program. They offer short online courses, for those who need a little education but don’t have time to go back to school full time or even part time. Rather than going to school, you participate in a two-day college retreat, then work online for 7 weeks on classwork.

The courses include subjects such as leadership and management, branding and brand management, advertising and society, media strategy, media marketing and a number of other courses, including several on film making. However, business courses are ideal for those looking to build knowledge and improve their business. You might even consider signing up one or two employees.

Benefits of the Bournemouth Mix program

The Mix program offered by the University of Bournemouth is extremely well thought out. There are over 30 short courses in total, on several different themes.

Each short course begins with a two-day retreat to the current university, where you will learn a lot. Then you continue to learn online with a tutor for seven weeks, during which you find out if you have passed the course. Five different courses are available at any time, giving you a wide choice.

Each course is worth 20 Masters-level credits and you need 60 of them to earn your graduate certificate. Take three more courses on top of that and you get your graduate degree, all without having to attend classes full time.

Classes are graded on 100% coursework, making it easier for graduate students to continue their education without crowding in for testing.

Perhaps the biggest advantage of all, however, is the ability to mix and match your classes. . . nothing says you have to take media classes only, so if you’ve always been in animation, why not try a class on that too? The sky is the limit and you can choose the courses that interest you.

Application and acceptance

Although the university offers these short courses to graduates who have at least 2 years of professional experience, they are also willing to accept those who have not graduated from the university. . . as long as you have at least 10 years of experience in the workforce. It seems like they’re a bit flexible about it, so if you’re interested, go ahead and apply to see if they’ll accept you anyway.
