Nobel International Academy welcomes men and women – representatives of different cultures to receive training in any of the academic programs on our list. The programs we offer can become basis for the carrier, allowing to expand opportunities for employment and enhancing your mobility. Upon successful completion our students receive specific certificates and diplomas.
Joining the Nobel International Academy community students get an access to an international network of tutors, lecturers, industry leaders and associates from all over the world.
NIA enjoys an alumni community that includes students coming from 30+ different countries around the globe.
By becoming a graduate of NIA students join this expanding community and remain connected to the NIA through information exchange and invitations to return to NIA for special events such as symposiums and seminars.
NIA takes attendance, and, therefore, will verify participation in each registered course at the end of week 1 in the module. Students who choose not to attend the first week will be institutionally dropped from the course. After attendance is established, if at any point during the module a student fails to submit assignments for more than 14 days, the student will be institutionally withdrawn from the course and will receive a “WF” for the final grade. A “WF” will be counted as a 0 in the GPA. A grade of “WF” will count towards both Pace of Completion and the GPA calculation. For more information, Withdrawal Policy/Institutional Drop Policy.
