Distant Learning

For the academic year 2013/14 GALILEO SCHOOL teamed up with Microsoft to offer an opportunity for any student in Slovakia to sign up for one of two courses in a distant, mainly online, learning form of a study, with the possibility of taking an examination and gaining an international certificate.

The courses start in September 2013 and finish in May 2014. The following courses are offered for the academic year 2013/14:

International GCSE History

AS level Mathematics

The courses will use the modern platform developed by Microsoft: Office 365 for Education with Lync and SkyDrive technology, and hence most of the course content, assignments and interaction will be online. However the course also consists of four optional tutoring sessions in an academic year. These will typically be on Saturdays throughout the year and will require the student to take part in person at the school premises in Bratislava.
