Online Learning

Studying online gives you the flexibility to study when you want, where you want. All you need is a reliable internet connection.

Newcastle University online courses are designed to fit around you, so you can tailor your study around your life. It gives you the ability to study with Newcastle University without having to visit our campus.

Online study is quite different from face-to-face study. It’s important to set aside regular time each week, in order to fully engage with the material and get the most from working with other students. Although you will be well supported in your studies by the programme team it’s important you feel comfortable in self-directed study and be able to manage your time accordingly.

All our online courses are delivered within an online learning environment which has been customised to deliver content in a clear, engaging, interactive and collaborative way. As a student you will be expected to participate in different learning activities with your cohort, building and sharing ideas as a group while you work through the modules. Content will be delivered in a variety of media including text based articles, video, animations, recorded presentations and interactive quizzes.
