Higher Education

When you undertake a Higher Education undergraduate course on the first day you will be introduced to the topics covered as well as the details of the delivery methods. The subsequent fifteen weeks’ study is done from home, along with in-depth support from a dedicated co-ordinator and specialist academic tutors. During this time you will 'virtually' or 'physically' attend two study days and two tutorial days and will submit a written assignment. Each semester concludes with a 2-hour written exam for each of your modules.

 All our undergraduate courses begin with 'Learning to Learn' introducing students to distance learning and continue with different groups of modules. Click on the course titles below to find out more about the modules linked to each course and the content of each module.
