TUI-Head for the hills

I have been a student in the PhD program for at about 3 years and am now in the dissertation phase. While taking the core courses online I received a lot of support. However, when you reach the dissertation phase you receive limited support from your committee. This is not the type of school I recommend to anyone. There have been at least 3 program directors since the time I started. Take my advice and head for the hills and don't look back.

I was researching this school for my daughter. We did not enroll her. The *Admissions* person we spoke with on a few occasions, was very unprofessional, and did not seem to know anything. He sounded very uneducated and kept trying to get other information out of me--that made me very uneasy. I felt very skeptical of this school. There was always lots of other *noise* in the background as if this was a *call center*. The two times we set up a phone appointment, he called 1.5 hrs late. Very unprofessional. Do lots of research before deciding.

Not Thrilled with TUI

  • Use of Technology:

I am in my second year of the International Health Science PhD program, after getting an MS from a different on-line institution. Since I'm not in the military, my classes cost a LOT, and the price just went way up. But regardless of the cost, I am concerned that this program doesn't offer the amount of mentorship or collaborative experience/support that my MS program provided. At a PhD level, I find this very frustrating and a major drawback to TUI. Most of the classes have been interesting, but I easily make "A"s even when I don't really understand the information. This concerns me since I'll have my orals coming up and I also need to know how to apply the information during my dissertation work. Although I like the flexibility of the program, I would probably go to a brick/mortar school if there was something in my area. Since there isn't, I'm settling for TUI.

I have completed 32 credits towards my PhD in International Health at this point, and can honestly say that I am very impressed with the education, support, and feedback i have received. I am used to online education, having completed my BSN and MSNEd through another well-known and respected online university, and I am happy to say that TUI is very comparable with respect to the education offered. This approach does require an enormous commitment of time, and requires much individual research and writing...that suits me well, but you MUST be self-directed or you will not benefit from this approach!! Overall a great school...and reasonably priced too!
