Structured, supported learning
Although online learning allows you to choose the best time and place to study, there are deadlines for assignments and you will need to submit your course work (or sit exams where relevant) at the end of each trimester. The academic year is split into three trimesters and you can join a course at any point during the year.
Our experience shows that this structured learning environment is the best way to help you stay on track to succeed. And you’ll get all of the support you need from your academic team, your dedicated Online Learning Advisor who will guide you throughout your studies and the wide range of pastoral care (library, wellbeing, student union etc.) you receive as a student of the University.
A module, studied over a 10 week period, is 200 learning hours, which means you can plan your study time and schedule when you want to study during the week, or time of day.
All of your learning resources are accessible online, so you can study where and when is convenient to you, from anywhere in the world. You can access learning materials from a desktop computer, laptop, tablet or mobile phone.
Courses and learning materials are developed to ensure accessibility to all learners, including those with disabilities.
Our courses are kept current through working with experts in the sector and many are accredited by professional organisations such as the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health, Institute of Hospitality and the Chartered Management Institute.
