DE target audience
The EAD aims to attract students who wish to combine studies and work. Generally, the EAD is intended for those students who are interested in having a degree, but have little freedom of time in their daily lives. Therefore, the EAD has as its target audience people who need to reconcile studies and work, and who have less free time to travel to a face-to-face university. In this way, EAD can provide students with a simple way to obtain a diploma, through flexible schedules, which can reconcile and organize time for their studies.
EAD and on-campus diploma
A good part of the concerns of many students in relation to distance learning has to do with the validity of the diploma. Most students who are interested in joining an institution that offers distance learning have doubts about the validity of the diploma and miss out on an opportunity in the job market. However, you need to keep in mind that face-to-face courses and EAD are also valid by the Ministry of Education, following the same criteria, the difference is the teaching method, which consists of face-to-face and distance learning. For this, it is enough for the educational institution to be accredited by the Ministry of Education, offering the required content and the workload determined by the MEC. In this case, the diploma available in the EAD is valid for use in the job market.
