Ways to study

Our flexible approach offers you a range of study options. You can study for one of our degrees wherever you are in the world, independently - with online support - or with the direct support of one of our Recognised Teaching Centres. 

Study by distance and online learning

Study independently, wherever you are in the world. Get online support for many of our degree programmes using our virtual learning environment - some programmes, such as BSc Computer Science, are also fully online. Find out more about studying via distance learning.
