All Nexford courses are designed to fit into your schedule and your life. There are no live classes. Our courses always open on the first of the month and close eight weeks later. During those eight weeks, you can freely move through course content at your own pace. Go ahead and create a timetable and workflow that suits you.

Our faculty members are passionate and approachable experts that specialize in the topics they teach. Fully certified professors or assistant professors teach all Nexford courses.

Nexford does not have live classes in the traditional university sense. However, many courses provide shared learning opportunities for learners. All our courses encourage you to interact with our faculty and your peers.

We have a clear and consistent structure for all of our courses so that you can track your progress easily.

Every Nexford course divides into six learning modules.

Each of these modules has a learning component and a testing component.

The first five modules are there to provide you with the opportunity to check-in as you go.

Ticking these off will ensure you’re on the right path ― comprehending all course materials.

The sixth module is a summative project. This final assessment will put all your insights from the course to the test in real-world scenarios.

That depends on how much time you're able to commit. NXU courses are designed to be completed in eight weeks. The time it takes you to complete your degree will depend on three factors:

1. The individual course requirements of your specific program

2. The number of courses you enroll in at the same time

3. How much time you’re able to commit to coursework, and how you pace yourself.

If you have questions, we'd love to hear from you. Drop us an email at help@nexford.org and we'll get back to you as soon as possible.
