Will I be able to do the course at any time?

The courses have a learning plan with a structured calendar, and submissions are weekly. Therefore, you can plan to view the resources and do the activities whenever you want within that week. The exception is the live class, which is delivered at a certain time. However, it is recorded, so you can see it whenever you want.

What happens if I cannot get material or a product from the course list?

Firstly, in the courses, you are always provided with a list of products to choose from. Secondly, you can see that in the list of course products and tools, there are always three classes: Essential, Recommended and Plus. The more you have, the better, but the course can also be done without many items.

What is module 0?

Module 0 is a module for learning the platform and the methodology of the course, and it is mandatory for those students who are taking a BCC online course for the first time. A week before the start of the course, access is given to the platform and module 0 is delivered. The purpose of this is to ensure you have a good chance of passing the course.

Do the courses have a lot of theory?

The explanatory part based on texts and photographs is relevant in the course and is designed to help each student decides the level to which they wish to go in each content. Various practical activities are completed. Most of them have a greater weighting than the theoretical content in order to make learning an enjoyable and fun experience.

What does the practice part consist of?

Essentially, it consists of students creating techniques and recording them, cooking dishes and photographing them, imagining and creating their own recipes and presenting dishes in videos. This is all done in a simple way and with swift interactive feedback from the tutor, helping you to improve.

How is it assessed?

In modular courses (or modules), assessment takes place continuously by correcting the submission of learning plan activities. The assessment of the different activities is weighted and the mark is taken directly from the result of the application of the weighting. You can monitor your progress through your platform account.

In the specialization course, the final mark is obtained from the mark for the different course modules, including the Synthesis Project module. To calculate the weight of the different modules, the number of teaching hours of each of them is taken into consideration.

What happens if I am unable to submit the activities within the expected period?

The Basque Culinary Center’s Online Courses have a weekly activity plan; therefore, every week the student must submit the scheduled activities. If on a given week the student cannot submit one or several activities, they can do so within a final deadline that is the last submission scheduled for that course. Submissions made after the initial scheduled date will entail a penalty on the final result.

Activities such as participation in forums and other group activities do not allow for delays as they interfere with the class dynamic.

What format is the certificate in?

When the course is completed a Basque Culinary Center certificate is issued in digital format that has the same validity as a printed certificate.
