Supported On-Campus and Open learning
The University teaches in English through its own unique method of distance learning, called ‘supported open learning’, which is:
- Flexible – students work where and when they choose to fit in with jobs, families and other commitments
- All-inclusive – students get all the high-quality materials they need to study
- Supportive – personal tutors provide academic expertise, guidance and feedback and run group tutorials; and specialist advisers are on hand to help with other aspects of University study
- Social – students get together through tutorials, online conferencing, study networks and course forums.
