If you're interested in studying online with us, you should join our Online Learning Open Day on Wednesday, 25 April 2018. Experts will be on hand to answer your questions about online learning.

Postgraduate Online Learning Open Day

Online learning is a way of studying for a high-quality, internationally recognised postgraduate qualification – including LLM, MPH, MScMVetSci, PgDip and PgCert – at your own pace and without needing to attend classes on campus. 

Our Online Learning Open Day is a programme of online sessions that will help you find out all you need to know about studying online.

Sessions take a range of formats, from interactive presentations to online chat rooms and live question-and-answer sessions.
