Study online with Oxford

Study whenever it suits you, from anywhere in the world. 

Short online courses

Our short online courses take place in a virtual learning environment and are run asynchronously – meaning there are no live-time meetings and you do not have to be online at any specific time to take the course. 

The 10-week modular format of each course offers you the time to study at your own pace, while keeping to a weekly schedule. 

Interaction between you and your classmates and tutor takes place in online forums, where you will engage in in-depth discussions and receive personalised tutor guidance and feedback. Coursework is an integral part of all our short online courses; you should expect to complete assignments as part of your course.

Sample units from online courses are available to view from the course demonstration site.

Virtual weekly classes

Our Weekly Oxford Worldwide (WOW) programme of live-time courses, based on our in-Oxford weekly classes, have now closed for enrolment. We hope to offer these classes again in autumn 2021. Sign up to our mailing list to be kept informed.

Certificate of Higher Education

Credit earned from our short online courses and WOW classes is transferable towards our award programme, the Certificate of Higher Education - a part-time undergraduate course in which you study a main subject discipline, but also undertake study in other academic subjects.
