Life as an international student

As an NU online international student, you’ll have access to interactive tools that support your individual learning style. Online coursework includes video lectures, audio recordings, readings, interactive presentations, assignments, quizzes, and exams.

Throughout your program, you’ll collaborate with professors and classmates, working together to create a strong community within the online classroom. Moving beyond the walls of a brick-and-mortar classroom, online classes use resources and communications tools that enhance learning.

Threaded discussions involve dialogue and debate with your classmates and the instructor at your leisure, day or night. Integral to the online learning experience, these discussions enable you to articulate your understanding of the course content while learning from your peers.

You'll use interactive learning tools like videos, 3D environments, blogs, and eBooks, as well as interactive flashcards, pre-tests, and quizzes, which will allow you to practice your knowledge. Voiceover PowerPoints, recorded lectures, and resource links provide rich supplement materials for access throughout the course.
