Collaborative learning

While you pay tuition on a course-by-course basis, you only meet
once a week with your teacher and one more night a week with
the team to study, consult and work on various topics. While you

find yourself relying on your team mates for support and guidance.
Therefore the likelihood for dropping out can be drastically
reduced. There are many other benefits you can reap being part of
the learning team. You will amass skills which you will be able to
transfer to the working world.

With more than 17,000 highly-qualified instructors, University of
Phoenix has helped over 99,000 students further their careers in
fields including Business, Technology, Education and Healthcare on
