Study and Assessment

Study and Assessment

Our online courses are delivered within an e-learning environment that presents content in a clear, engaging, interactive and collaborative way.

Your time commitment

Modules vary from 10 to 15 weeks in length. You’ll need to dedicate around 10 hours of study per week for a 10 credit module and 20 hours of study per week for a 20 credit module.

You should set aside regular time each week for your studies. This is so that you can fully engage with the material and get the most from working with other students on the course.

All study and assessment is undertaken fully online. You can apply and register online and there are no residential or other on-campus sessions involved.

You will take part in learning activities with other students on the course. These activities will enable you to build on and share ideas with others as you work through the modules. Content will be delivered through a variety of media including:

  • text-based articles
  • video
  • animations
  • recorded presentations
  • interactive quizzes

Networking opportunities

Throughout each module you will benefit from direction and support from your module lead. 

Through meeting other students on your course, you'll also have the opportunity to widen your professional and personal networks.
