How do our Effective Courses work?

After signing up for the course, you are given access to your personal student account where you can find all the materials and information about your studies.


Our Effective Courses consist of 10 monthly modules, each of which comprises 30 blocks (daily lessons) - 15 minutes of video courses, discussions, tips & tricks, etc. Once you complete one daily block, another one will be automatically uploaded to your student account in 4 hours.


Do you need to skip a day or more? No problem! We offer a 2-month-long anti-stress time reserve to complete the course. As an EDU Effective student, you are part of an online community where you can share your opinions, ideas and experience, network and participate in the open forum in our student system.

What is the language of the studies?

Our courses are in English (including content materials like videos, e-books, tips, e-tests, etc.). But you have the possibility to submit written outputs (evaluation and contribution of modules and personal action plans) in your native language. Communication with EDU Effective is in English, Czech or Slovak language.

Note: Tutorial videos have transcripts in English and you can translate them into your language using, for example, online translators. Featured videos usually have the option of auto-generated subtitles in various languages, plus you can also slow the videos down and thus make it easier to understand the content.

What is the length of the studies?

The Effective MBA, MPA, MSc. or LL.M. consist of 10 modules. Each module comprises of 30 fifteen minutes long blocks (daily lessons). This means that if you proceed at the designed pace, you will complete the course in 10 months. You can, of course, finish your studies earlier, if you complete more blocks a day. To ensure that you have all the time you need, we provide an extra 2-month-long anti-stress time reserve, which means that you have a total of 12 months to complete the course.


Please note that there is a 4-hour delay in between each two daily blocks to ensure that the micro-learning aspect of your studies remains as effective as possible. This means that after you complete one block, another one will automatically uploaded to your student system in 4 hours.

When can I start?

Immediately - you don't have to wait for anything, start today! You can apply immediately to secure your spot.

What if I need to skip a day or more?

No problem! Each lesson is unlocked after the completion of the previous one; if you miss a day or two, you will continue where you left off. We recommend that you follow the daily routine, but we understand that it is not always possible.

Why is there a delay in between the daily blocks?

The 4 hour gap delay is present to maintain the effectiveness of micro-learning. The new information must be applied gradually (plus you develop a great habit of daily studying). The delay works as follows: at the beginning of the study you will see 3 blocks in the student platform (Welcome, About Module I., Block 1/30). All blocks with a number have a set delay. After one block is completed, another block is automatically added to the system in 4 hours.

Do our courses have official EQF rating?

Since we are based in the Czech Republic and titles like MBA are considered professional here, they cannot have an official EQF rating, as EQF is mainly connected with academic titles and primary and secondary education.
