Online Courses

placeholder

Structured as weekly online meetings, our online courses take place in a virtual learning environment. Class sizes are kept small (capped at 32 students, or 20 for creative writing) to maximise interaction between students and the tutor. Courses are normally 5-10 or 20 weeks in duration. A few longer courses result in Oxford qualifications at the undergraduate, advanced diploma and postgraduate levels.

How our online courses work

Sample units from online courses in Archaeology, Art History, Literature and Philosophy are available to view from the course demonstration site.
