The people and education are good and well informed. It is nice to be around a good community and environment.
Classes are online and it has been very convenient and helpful. I have been able to make my schedule work more.
The people at BGU are amazing. They have checked up on us and guided us so much and we have not even been to campus yet! The people are welcoming and just all around good people. They all really have a heart on fire for the Lord and I am excited to be able to go to the school in the fall.
Most of the online classes take place while on internship overseas. The best part comes from interaction with other students in other places. This adds valuable alternate perspective. I personally preferred the wide latitude and flexibility of the generally self-learning style. At times though, this made it kind of hard to discern assignment objectives. However, it does promote "taking ownership" of your own learning and allows you to take it in directions of interest. The real learning comes when you step our your front door into foreign culture all around. For people with self-motivation, the online format on internship really allows students to go far and deep into areas that really interest them. The addition of more visuals from the professors could make this format even better. On the whole, this format suited me quite well.
The best thing about Bethany is the people you get to meet. Some share about experiences and wisdom gained from all over the globe. Others prepare to change the world. Passionate active people abound. This program demands a great deal of time and energy. For some people, it simply becomes too much. For instance, more of the mandatory events should be optional. For married people, the student's spouse needs to immerse in the community as well or else it puts a big strain on marriage. As for perfectionists? Lower your standards a bit for the sake of survival! While the required work on campus provides good life experience and lower costs, better efforts could be made to match students to areas of natural gifting. The absence of this adds to the strain. The global internship overseas is awesome. This is what truly sets the program apart. I tolerated much of the time in MN but really loved most of the 15 months in Asia. If nothing else, BGU is unique. By the end, you've truly done a lot.
Online is a little difficult when you are overseas. The assignments can be vague and it's a lot of self-teaching. I am someone who needs the Bible taught to me and while you are overseas, none of it is taught to you. You teach yourself.
Bethany global is my other best opinion for special education on think college for the beyond limits program I would gladly recommend this college for me to attend but I have to do life blessings first.
The online experience paid my work off to get me into Minnesota Bethany global online learning can take you on a quest.
Most classes are in person, though you would utilize a student portal to turn in work. Most of the professors struggled to use the portal so it could be frustrating at times decerning the expectations of the classwork. the portal itself operated fine however and rarely did I ever run into issues with the program.
Bethany has been very encouraging! One of my favorite things about Bethany is their tuition paid program. Your tuition for Bethany is complete paid by 3 component. The first being FASFA, the second is PT(work study), and the third is a scholarship that Bethany gives to their students.
Bethany Global allows freshman only to take their courses online. Once you are overseas your junior year then all of your classes will be online.
I love Bethany Global University! They are good at what they do, and have found their niche in the University scene. It's different from other schools, but I do not necessarily see that as a bad thing. I love the education I am receiving and the opportunities that go along with it!
