About Online Learning

How does online learning work?

Online learning takes place in the Blackboard virtual learning platform, with continuous support available from your tutor 7 days a week. Its exceptional flexibility makes this type of study the right alternative for all those employed, young people with limited free time and all those whose work, family and other obligations make them unable to physically attend lectures.

Studying requires about 15-20 hour student work a week. Even though the programme is flexible the conditions in continuous assessment must be followed strictly by the student. The weekly assignments will adapt to the final grade of the course.

An outline of how online learning can work for you is available here.
