Learn the flexible way

Online learning is the flexible way to improve your skills and career potential. As long as you commit to assignment deadlines, you can arrange your studies to fit your own schedule. And because our online Masters degrees are taught by the same expert lecturers as the campus-based degrees, you’ll graduate with the same career prospects as any of our students.

Essential requirements

All course content is delivered through our online learning management system, Engage. To use it, you’ll need a reliable laptop or desktop computer with a strong Internet connection, and an up-to-date browser, such as Chrome or Internet Explorer. You’ll also need a word processor, like Microsoft Word, for most of your assignments.

A webcam is not required, but it’s helpful for group work. If you wish, you can use an independent platform, like Teams or Zoom, to work on group projects.

It’s a good idea to have a backup plan ready in case you lose Wi-Fi connection or your computer crashes. Consider Wi-Fi zones and methods for connecting with other students. If you have any technical issues, don’t hesitate to get in touch by emailing or calling us on 0800 032 1180.
