V-LEARN -- NUI offers a BSc in Rural Development via V-Learn.ie. Each module involves a three hour lecture that is accompanied by a PowerPoint presentation. Students can contact tutors online and interact with each other through the discussion forums. Local tutorials complete the mix.
The programme, which is a collaborative venture between four universities, will be offered as a National University of Ireland (NUI) Degree by NUI Dublin, NUI Cork, NUI Galway and NUI Maynooth. On completion of Level One, students have the option to graduate with an NUI Diploma in Rural Development or progress to the degree phase of the programme. The programme is targeted at people who are involved in rural development in a professional or voluntary capacity and will provide participants with the knowledge and skills to manage all aspects of local or rural development initiatives.
