We hope this will assist you with your decision to enroll in an online course with us and provide you with an insight into how our programmes run and what studying online involves.
Community is a big factor in this programme and participating in discussions around different topics make the course a success and you feel well supported in your learning.
Whilst there will be a multitude of learning resources made available to you, we can also learn a lot from each other's experience as well.
So each week we'll encourage you to discuss the topics with each other, which makes for a great learning experience. Of course, you tutor will also be on hand to answer your questions and encourage your discussions.
