How do I apply to Oxford continuing education?

After applying for grants for continuing education severally, I managed to get one. Consequently, I would like to join Oxford continuing education for a course in electronics. I am particularly interested in an online program to avoid conflicts with my job. Before starting this job, I had no idea of the importance of continuing education. In fact, I often asked myself “what is continuing education?” I came to understand the significance of these courses recently after landing this job. Sorry for straying a bit off the topic, anyway how do I get into Oxford CE?

Many people do not know what continuing education is. They have little or no information on this form of education. Therefore, they fail to appreciate the importance of these programs to their careers and the dispensation of their professional duties.

Below are the steps you should follow to apply for an Oxford CE.

  • Identify the course you want to pursue

The first step for you before making any application is to identify the course you want to pursue. The Department of Continuing Ed at Oxford has a course catalog of all the CEs they offer. You can choose a course by subject area, course type (short courses, lecture series, award programs), format (online, summer school, and so on), location, and credit.

  • Evaluate your eligibility

Before you can get into Oxford continuing ed., you ought to ensure that you meet all the eligibility requirements for prospective students.

Since you are applying for a professional development course, you ought to have some level of knowledge on electrical and electronic engineering. CEs aim to brush up on those topics where you are a bit “rusty.” It is not meant for people who wish to get into a particular field for the first time.

You ought to have prior exposure to related subjects such as math and basic science. To reap maximum benefit from an electronic/ electrical CE, you should have a higher level of education on the subject as well as some experience in the field.

Expect to find professionals who work in occupations where they interact with electronics in this class. These include drafts personnel, assembly/production staff, PCB designers, and software developers.

Moreover, those who use electronic devices in their everyday duties can take CEs in electronics. These include people in managerial and sales positions in electronic companies. If you come in contact with electronics for the most of your daily job, this course will be ideal for you.

Quick note; Make sure you meet the minimum computer requirements.

Contact the Course administrator if you have more queries regarding the application process.

  • Fill out relevant forms

Fill and submit all necessary forms required for the processing of your application. You might need to fill both online and paper forms.

Personal take: I highly recommend continuing education courses from Oxford. They are excellent and will provide value for your grant for continuing education.

I wish you all the best with your continuing education.

Oxford continuing education courses are fantastic. I took a continuing education course in study skills and education, and I can say that it exceeded my expectation. It was excellent in all aspects of the word. I managed to efficiently understand and leverage mixed strategies in research in the field of social science.

Oxford CE is head high above other continuing education providers for some reasons. Firstly, they have an excellent curriculum. From my studies here, I was able to learn way much more about different aspects of my occupation than I had anticipated. I thought I was at the peak of knowledge, but I must admit I was wrong. The content was quite refreshing and edifying.

Secondly, the mode of teaching does it for students. From group discussions to interactive classroom sessions, lessons here help you learn what is supposed to learn.

I highly recommend Oxford for you. Good luck!
