British BioMedicine Institute offers Skilled Nano Degree

Choosing a BioMedicine Institute is an important decision. One of the best ways to help you decide is to visit www.bbminstitute.com and see for yourself what we have to offer. With current students on hand to share their personal experience, and tutors to discuss our superb range of NanoDegree Program, BBMI Open Days are a great opportunity to help find the right BioMedicine Institute for you.

Your Online Learning Experience

Going back to school can be daunting. You’ve got a full-time job to maintain, responsibilities in your personal life, and it sure would be nice to schedule in some “me” time. When there’s only 24 hours in a day, pursuing additional education seems time-prohibitive, but it doesn’t have to be. Online learning allows you to get the relevant, highly sought-after skills in a way that seamlessly integrates with your busy work schedule and life.

Our online NanoDegree give you the flexibility to complete your coursework when and where to fit your schedule. Course material is always accessible online 24/7—be it videos, animated material, podcasts or reading materials.

Classroom Interaction In a Web Environment

You’ll never be alone while taking your courses. In each class, your instructors encourage you to interact with them and your classmates, discussing and exploring the various topics—using web, video and audio conferencing tools, small-group work and student presentations. Need to revisit a lecture? Your course material is always there for you—whenever you need it.

Remember, too, that your classmates come from varied backgrounds with different insights on the material at hand—giving you different outlooks on a certain subject.

Online Nano Degree Programs

Each year we work with thousands of students across the Globe, delivering Evidenced based, Practical Training designed to increase understanding of higher education study and career.

The following Nano Degrees can be completed fully online:

Start Anytime Courses

Start Anytime online courses begin when you enroll in the course. From the date of enrollment, you have a minimum of 90 days and a maximum of 180 days to complete the course (including the final exam or project). The 180 days begin when you enroll, not when you begin coursework. Course completion dates are strictly enforced.

Expect a minimum of 30 days per semester unit to finish by the course end date; for 3–4 unit semester-long courses, there is a minimum of 90 days of study. This allows for instructor-led interaction and feedback between assignments to get the most out of your class. You may only submit one module at a time, allowing at least a week for grading and feedback from your instructor. If you are unable to complete your coursework and do not officially withdraw from the online course before the completion date, you may receive a grade of F.

Fixed-Date Courses

Fixed-Date courses have specific start and end dates. Your access to the course content begins on the course start date. You will complete assignments within the specific dates posted in your online classroom, and as set by your instructor in the course syllabus.

Proctored Exam-Taking Eligibility

Start Anytime Courses

Allot at least two weeks to complete the exam release process. Your instructor will need to approve the release of your exam. All of your coursework must be graded and you must meet the time-in-course requirement of 30 days per semester unit (90 days for courses that are 3 or more units). The exam must be completed by the 180th day of enrollment, which is your course end date.

To request instructor approval to take your final exam:

  1. Log in to your student portal
  2. Click on “My Proctored Exams” tab
  3. Click on the “Send Request” option

Once your exam is approved for release by your instructor, your request status will change from “Sent” to “Approved” and you will receive an email notification. The email will instruct you to log back in to your student portal. Under “My Proctored Exams” you will click “Select a Proctor.”

Fixed-Date Courses

Your exam is available one week before the course end date and one week after the course end date.

After Your Exam

Within 3 business days of receiving the digital copy of your completed exam, we will forward the exam to your instructor for grading. Your final grade should be posted within 2 weeks from the time we received your exam. To view your final grade, log in to your student portal and select “My Enrollment History.”

If you need a transcript, once your final grade is posted on your student portal, you can learn how to place a transcript order here.

Nuts and Bolts

How do I enroll

You can enroll at any time. Simply visit the course page you’re interested in and click on “Add to Cart.” If you’re new to BBMInstitute, you’ll need to create a student profile. Already have a profile? Simply log to evidencebasedskills.com  in with your student number and password. Once you’re logged in, you’ll be directed to the checkout where you will need to pay for the course. Instructions will follow on accessing your course in our online environment.

What’s the difference between “ongoing” and specific dates for online courses?

Online courses that specify “ongoing” mean that they are offered year-round and you can enroll anytime. Once you receive instructions on accessing your course, you’re ready to go.

Online courses that specify beginning and end dates mean that you need to complete the course within that range.

How long do I have to complete an ongoing course?

To make sure you get the most out of your course, you must actively study a minimum of 30 days per semester unit with a maximum of 180 days after you enroll. This allows you to participate in instructor-led interaction and get feedback between assignments. You complete one module at a time, turn in your assignment, receive feedback from your instructor, and then you’re on to the next module. After all your work is submitted and graded, your final exam is released to a local proctoring site. Make sure you review your course syllabus, which will have further details specific to your course.

How do I schedule a proctored exam?

Many of our courses require you to take a proctored exam upon completion of coursework to receive credit.
