About online learning

Online learning is a flexible form of learning which allows you to study from home, work, on the move or wherever else is convenient, and at a time to suit you.

Unlike a traditional campus-based university environment, our online learning courses utilise a virtual learning environment. Our online platform enables both students and tutors to actively take part in real-time conversations, listen to and view recorded lectures and take part in live question and answer sessions.

You will be supported throughout your course by a dedicated Student Adviser and will have the opportunity to regularly interact with fellow students and your tutor.

You will not need to travel to attend any classes; studying is carried out entirely online and your programme of study can fit around your work and personal commitments.

Upon successful completion of your degree course, you will receive a degree validated by the University of Essex and be invited to attend a graduation ceremony at the University of Essex, Colchester Campus.
