Online Courses

Discover the online student learning experience

Study that suits you

The online courses at Nottingham Trent University (NTU) offer the same challenging curriculum and commitment to student success as our campus-based degree courses. Like our students on campus, you will benefit from the expertise of our award-winning lecture and research staff — just in a different format.


Join NTU’s global community and accelerate your career.

While our campus is located in the UK, our online student body is truly global. With no need to set foot on campus, you'll engage in NTU's interactive learning environment, interact with faculty virtually, and exchange ideas across the world—enhancing your education and your career.

Complete flexibility to study on your terms

As long as you commit to completing the set modules by the deadline, you can arrange your studies to fit your professional schedule and personal commitments. This makes online courses an attractive option for working professionals with busy schedules or students who live far away.

Connect with the curriculum — online

Nottingham Trent University (NTU) is continually developing innovative ways to bring our courses to life in our interactive virtual learning environment. Our distance learning courses are designed to immerse you in the material to make you feel like you’re in the classroom without actually setting foot in one. “I really hadn’t accounted for the advantage of being able to tap into a private tutorial 24/7. That’s been the best feature by far” says current Online MBA student, William Walker. These interactive elements and features include:

No need to set foot on campus

Engage in courses brought to life in an interactive environment

 Comprehensive video lectures – immerse yourself completely in the course content

 Social interaction – get help with assignments and be part of the student community by interacting with teachers and students from around the world online via discussion posts, video chat, and email

 Real life case studies – appreciate the practical implications of your studies

 Interactive assignments – experience more engaging learning

 Research supervision – learn the necessary techniques and skills to conduct and evaluate research

 Academic and technical support – connect with student support resources when you need assistance


A personal approach

Whilst all our online courses follow a set curriculum, there are plenty of opportunities to follow particular interests or career-oriented paths through particular projects and specialisms. Our lecturers will help you identify your strengths and passions to produce a course that works for you, giving you all the support and encouragement that you need.

Through the participation of discussion board, I understand the topics more thoroughly and from different perspectives by reading posts from my classmates. This is a very interactive learning process compared with traditional on-campus teaching.
