We understand that our students come from all corners of the world, and not everyone has the time, finances, or ability to move abroad to receive good quality education. Therefore, our students can choose one of three delivery methods: distance learning, Virtual Campus or physical campus attendance.

Distance Learning


For the self-motivated learner who wants total control over their schedule. This mode of study offers the same course content and access to the learning management system, the only difference is you can choose what you study, when!

Studying 100% online is perfect if you have begun your career and are looking to take the next step, or you’re a school leaver wanting to study a qualification alongside getting that all-important work experience.

You’ll still get access to lecturers and our friendly student support team should you require any assistance.

Virtual Campus

Your classroom. Your Library. Your management system.

Enrol on our comprehensive Virtual Campus and you will be invited to attend weekly sessions with expert teachers and work collaboratively with your fellow peers. This is a great opportunity to network and meet people from different cultures and backgrounds.

You’ll delve into the course materials and take part in interesting discussions relating to your course topics. This mode of study will enrich your studies and help you keep on track. You’ll be able to ask questions, get access to additional resources and take part in interactive quizzes.

After the class has finished, you’ll be able to access all the materials including a recording of the session.

Physical Campus

For the student who is looking for the full university experience, we have various physical campuses you can enrol with.
