In today's job market there are no doubts about the importance of specialising and acquiring new skills.

Professionals from all backgrounds feel the urge to become experts in their industries and achieve higher levels in their career. Due to work and family commitments many simply don't have time for a full-time, year-long postgraduate programme, and for that reason the number of people studying via online platforms has increased exponentially over the last few years.

Set your own timetable

One of the main problems when it comes to furthering your education has always been lack of time. Let's face it, our lives are so busy, and oftentimes there are just not enough hours in the day. Why not set your own timetable - study when it suits you, and enrol in classes around your own schedule. If this sounds good to you, then maybe an online college degree is a perfect fit.

Technology mirroring campus experience

With constantly evolving technology, online education becomes more accessible and yet more comprehensive. A expanding range of postgraduate degrees are synched with campus education, and is now available at the click of a button.

With 30 programmes to choose from you will gain your degree through a variety of teaching and learning methods such as HD-quality video lectures, online seminars, interactive discussion boards, analysis of case studies and directed readings. These run seamlessly alongside additional learning resources such as quick tests, revision kits, self-assessed mock exams, live chat and online libraries – all at a time and place to suit you.

Learn without borders

With online education you no longer have to be fixed to one location. All of the learning resources available are accessible 24/7 from wherever you are in the world, giving you complete control.

Study with no distractions

You may be tempted to think studying online is complicated or confusing. Our easy to use platform is just like being in the lecture theatre but with no distraction from other students – it's just you and the lecturer!

Interact with students and tutors

Interacting with fellow students and tutors is an important part of your studies, and online students are encouraged to do just that. Take part in live online seminars and forums, exercise your knowledge or raise issues in student-led discussions with tutor moderation, interactive exercises and peer activity.

Learn how to study online

Studying online and managing your own studies is a skill in itself! Given the number of people who now study online, plus the number of companies that use online training for their employees, it is a vital skill to be proficient with online tools and technology.
