The Establishment of Approved Support Center (ASC)

The Distributed Learning courses of Newport University has been created by following the system founded by the Russian scientist Evreinov E.V. in 1954, the principle of the distributed processing of the information in various structures and the environments. This structure is the distributed learning equivalent of the highly successful, full-time courses, which has been offered by the university since its establishment in 2008. These courses are now being delivered in centers throughout the world.

The Newport University embarked upon a project to produce a set of manuals which would make it possible to offer its courses through Approved Support Center’s (ASC’s) around the world. The manuals contain all of the material required (subject content, learning objectives, worked examples and sample examinations) to prepare students for online examinations leading to the award of the degrees the establishment of an approved support center to co-ordinate the activities of the students significantly enhances the quality of the learning experience for the student.

Approved Support Centers are not authorized to confer Newport University’s degrees/transcripts to students. Degrees conferral and transcripts are handled directly by the University.

The Newport University is keen to establish Approved Support Centers around the world. Such centers provide students with an opportunity to study for the degrees offered by the university in their own country. The establishment of these centers also provides the institute with the opportunity to extend its network of educational partnerships throughout the world.

When the centers are being established the level of support provided by the Institute will depend upon variables, such as the technical and educational experiences of staff currently employed by the center and the infrastructure already in place. However, during the establishment of the center, the Newport University will provide support on issues, such as the recruitment and training of appropriate staff, management structure for the center and IT infrastructure requirements for on-line examinations according to the Quality Assurance Services unit of the university to comply with the standards set on the requirements of ISO 9001:2008.
