Choose how you study

We offer a choice of study options so you can feel confident to start your programme, keep your studies on track and achieve your university goals.

Start virtually from home

You may be unsure about travelling right now, or prefer to study from the comfort of your home. That's why we are offering two flexible options for virtual learning:

  1. Start your programme from home and join us on campus in the UK when you can
  2. Study your whole programme via virtual, teacher-led learning in a vibrant online international community*

Studying virtually, you can expect:

  • Virtual teacher-led learning
  • Online international community
  • Experienced teachers and support staff
  • One-to-one support at every stage
  • Supportive staff to help you transition to the UK when the time comes

Join us on campus

If you join us on campus, you can expect:

  • Experienced teachers and support staff
  • One-to-one support at every stage
  • Additional health and safety measures
  • Blended learning, which is a mixture of face-to-face and virtual teacher-led learning

Joining us from September 2021

Our centre is currently open for all students and we are now accepting applications for our September 2021 start dates. Our aim is to get you to where you want to be.

*We hope you will be able to travel to the UK and study with us on campus. If, however, you are unable to travel for the whole of your pathway programme you can complete your studies from home. The University will recognise virtual-only study and assessment for progression to the 2021/22 academic year due to the exceptional circumstances related to COVID-19 on the condition that you have met the progression requirements.

Please note that this information is subject to change. Government guidance to prevent the spread of COVID-19 is regularly changing and therefore we will continue to review and adapt the measures that we’re putting in place to safeguard our staff and students. Students should continue to check government health and travel advice regularly before making any plans to travel. We will continue to communicate with you in the event of any changes.
