From talking to online students, graduates and our online tutors, here’s what we think you need to succeed as an online student:

  • Self discipline and motivation

  • Good organisational skills – so you can plan study timetables and get into a routine

  • A place where you can focus on your studies – whether it’s a spare room at home, your office at work a coffee shop or the train – a place where you can concentrate is essential.

  • A computer with internet connection

  • Confidence in using computers, the internet. Experience of online forums and chat rooms is also beneficial.
