They offer different kind of studies, Bachelor programes, in two different fields: teaching or Accounting/administrative 19 in total and 22 postdegree programs. In both kind of studies you can learn through the three methods discussed previously.

To study they offer different media aviable such as VLE, telephone, fax, email, personal interviews, individual or group meetings. Supporting material or text, is the main resource for learning, a printed material for all kinds of studies.
