All of our distance learning courses are delivered online using a range of innovative and interactive teaching methods. Teaching is supplied through a Virtual Learning Environment giving you access to everything you need to successfully complete a course.

Courses are delivered via a mixture of online methods including video lectures, study guides, self-directed and guided reading, as well as a range of interactive online reflection and discussion activities. You will become part of a vibrant and supportive virtual community, and will be taught through a combination of group work and independent study.
