Study whenever it suits you, from anywhere in the world.
Our short online courses take place in a virtual learning environment. Most courses are 10 weeks in duration and they all run asynchronously – they have no live-time meetings - so you do not have to be online at any specific time to take the course. You can access the course whenever it is convenient for you, from anywhere in the world.
Class sizes are kept small to maximise interaction between you and your classmates and tutor in the online forums. Students are able to take part in in-depth discussions and receive personalised tutor guidance and feedback.
