The Autonomous University of Baja California, offers greater possibilities of access to higher education.

This Core Subject is composed by 20 subjects distributed in three semesters. At the end of the first year, you can choose to join any of the three educational programs of the Faculty, (according to the availability of these programs.)
In which cities will the online mode be offered?
At this moment only in the Faculty of Pedagogy and Educational Innovation (Mexicali), and in the Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences (Tijuana.)
Are there other programs that are offered in this modality at the UABC?
No, for the moment this modality is only available exclusively in the programs of Pedagogy, both in Mexicali and Tijuana.
When I leave from UABC, will my core subject have the same validity as a fully face-to-face program?
Yes, of course, titles are the same in terms of their issuance and official validity, regardless of the modality in which they study the program.
You use a virtual classroom on the internet where you have access to all your courses, the contents and description of learning activities. There, you interact with other classmates and with your teacher.
What do I need to study online?
Computer equipment and internet access are required.
Will I be able to access the facilities and services of the UABC?
Like any student of the UABC, you have access to university facilities to consult libraries, attending laboratories, tutoring, and conduct school procedures, and so on.
How do I choose the online program?
When following the procedure established by UABC. When you choose the educational program to which you want to access, the option of the Pedagogical Programs and the Online First Year will appear, then you must choose this option to indicate your preference.
Is there any difference in the cost of registration if I choose the online mode?
There is no difference in the registration fee because you have access to all the resources and facilities of the university and the same quality of education, either in an online program or in one face-to-face.
If I take the online modality, it would take longer to graduate?
In any of the two modalities (face-to-face and online) the duration of the full bachelor's program is eight semesters. It does not influence the modality in the duration of the degree, the First Year online is equal in duration with the face-to-face modality.
FIVE REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD STUDY AN ONLINE PROGRAM
· Flexible schedule:
Within the programs there are defined activities, which allows you to decide the study times that fit your needs.
· Development of digital competences:
The activity in the virtual classroom allows you to develop autonomous and continuous learning strategies, working collaborative projects remotely, communicate assertively in electronic media, among other important skills for your working life.
· Balance between work and education:
In the online mode you do not have to attend classes at some specific time or place, which gives you the freedom to combine work and studies.
· Problems related with transportation:
You do not have to attend the University to take classes. A virtual classroom is used for learning activities and contact with your teacher. However, as all students have free access to libraries, laboratories, sports areas, among other areas of services.
· Educational quality:
In the online modality, as in the UABC face-to-face programs, you have access to updated contents, learning activities designed by experts, in addition at all times you are accompanied by a specialized teacher and a tutor who guides you in your academic project. So you can be sure that you are getting a quality education in any modality you choose.
