Distance Learning support
As an online student support is available from module tutors, from the course leader and from a designated administrative officer. You can contact these individuals typically at any time and if they are not available they will get back to you as soon as possible..
Your support team understand the challenges of distance learning and are on hand to answer any queries that you may have at any time during your studies.
They will provide you with regular feedback to support and to improve the way that you learn and will make sure that you remain on track, with a gentle nudge to guide you in the right direction. You will also receive assessment marks at the end of every module.
You're still part of the community
Whether you're studying from home or the other side of the world, you'll still be part of a student group and you'll be able to attend graduation just like the full-time students. The Blackboard Virtual Learning Environment also enables you to chat to other students so you can swap contact information and support each other with your studies.
As well as improving my skillset, I received fantastic support from the Distance Learning tutors and fellow course members. Off the back of completing the course, there was an opportunity for me to conduct a PHD. I jumped at the chance to continue my academic development.Joe Dixon, Online Distance Learning Student
