Studying online

Online learning is a way of studying for an internationally recognised qualification from the University of Edinburgh without needing to visit the campus.

The University offers more than 60 programmes, including Postgraduate Certificates, Diplomas and Masters degrees. All awards are identical to our on-campus qualifications, but delivered flexibly and fully online.

This means wherever you are in the world, you can achieve a University of Edinburgh degree without ever needing to come to campus.

Online programmes are increasingly popular among those who wish to study for a postgraduate qualification alongside on-going work or other commitments.
