This is the online version of our programme. Please note that we no longer actively enrols students, provide individual tutoring or certification services.

Each of the course packages contains a syllabus file guiding you through your studies, the set reading (textbook(s)) for each area of study, and the essential exam files.

There are no tutoring or certification services for these course contents anymore due to the retirement of the professors in charge. Institutions with faculty and administrators suitably qualified can apply for a free license to run this degree program in part or in its entire form and to offer certification services on the basis of these course contents. The requirement for such a license is that you maintain a database for each student and update it regularly according to student performance. We also have some templates for student performance recording which later may become the basis for a final student transcript. We will send them to you as well if your license application has been successful.
