Which format should I take this course in — on campus or online?
It’s up to you! Our Remote courses offer a learning experience that mirrors GA’s on-campus offerings but allow you to learn from the comfort of home. If you don’t live near a GA campus, have a busy travel schedule, or just want to save yourself the commute, a Remote course could be a good option for you. You’ll still get access to the expert instruction, learning resources, and support network that GA is known for.
If you prefer to learn alongside your peers and can make it to campus, our in-person courses allow you to take advantage of our beautiful classrooms and workspaces.
Our Admissions team can advise you on the best format for your personal circumstances and learning style.
What is the remote experience at GA?
Engage in live, online, project-based learning that’s designed to transform your career — from anywhere. Powered by Zoom, the major video conferencing tool, and the collaborative messaging platform Slack, our interactive classroom mirrors what you’ll encounter as part of the modern workforce.
You’ll be able to not only share your screen and present your work to classmates but also collaborate in small groups via breakout rooms. Additionally, you can revisit recordings of class sessions in the future.
Beyond class hours, get guidance, feedback, technical assistance, and more during frequent one-on-one check-ins and office hours.
Can I work full-time while enroled in this course?
Yes! All of our Short Courses are designed for busy professionals with full-time work commitments. Depending on your location, classes meet twice per week in the evenings, or all day on Saturday. If you’re able to dedicate a full week to learning, we also have a full-time, accelerated 1-week option. Please keep in mind that our remote course is live online, which means that if you take the accelerated programme, you’ll be connected live with your instructor and classmates the whole day.
You will be expected to spend time working on homework and projects outside of class hours each week, but the workload is designed to be manageable with a full-time job.
If you need to miss a session or two, we offer resources to help you catch up. We recommend you discuss any planned absences with your instructor.
