In Response To: Re: Ma Tesol In China (Tom)

I've spoken to a couple of colleagues here at a university in Wellington, who have the MA TESOL from Univ. of Nottingham which they did on the China campus. Their diplomas do not say anything about it being done on their China campus, as it is the same course from the same university, diplomas issued by Univ. of Nottingham, and some of the professors rotate through the campuses.
The only issue for some students were Chinese students who found that employers in China wanted them to have an MA from a Chinese university, so those students had to go through an approved process where their Nottingham MA was assessed by something like 'the Chinese qualifications assessment bureau' to have a certificate issued to say the qualification was acceptable as an MA in China. to the rest of the world, it is an MA from Univ. of Nottinghamm

On the issue of on-line courses. Many universities now, rather than offering what they name 'XXX by distance', or 'YYY by on-line study', now simply offer one course with several streams/schedules of the same course/modules, but some of the options are on-line only. But again, the issued diploma/transcript makes no mention at all of whether the module/whole course was taken on-line or on campus, and most universities will argue that it is the same course - same readings assignments, lectures recorded an available by on-line sign-in, and same level of class and instructor interaction IF those students make use of the available interaction facilities.
