Get access to your modules, assignments, and webinars anytime thanks to Canvas, our intuitive online learning platform. All you need is a computer or tablet, along with a reliable internet connection.

In addition, to have more control over your time, all modules are designed to be studied in weekly portions, with the option to attend live webinars or watch them back later. With this approach, you can plan out each week and develop a study style that works best for you.

  • Feedback from your tutors on assignments
  • Our Student Adviser and IT Teams
  • The University Library
  • Online forums to join group discussions with your peers
