Postgraduate Online Learning Open Days

NEXT EVENT: 24 - 25 May 2023. We offer +70 postgraduate degrees that you can study online! Join us online in May to find out more and live text -chat with academic staff, support services and students.

Staff seemed genuinely enthusiastic about the courses and pleased to answer questions. The information was useful and there were people keeping an eye on the chat too so everyone was very responsive. Excellent open day all round.

Event attendee, May 2022

The Online Learning Open Days are ideal for anyone considering our fully online postgraduate programmes. At this event, we'll cover all our postgraduate online learning programmes, with opportunities to hear from - and live text chat with - the academic staff that teach on these programmes.  You'll be able to attend live webinars delivered by our professional services and student support staff who will outline the support available to you as an online learner at Edinburgh. We also invite you to register for the live student panel sessions where current online learning students and recent graduates will answer your questions and share their experiences of online learning at Edinburgh.

Online learning is a way of studying for a high-quality, internationally recognised postgraduate qualification – including Masters degree (such as MSc, LLM), Postgraduate Professional Development (PgProfDev),  Postgraduate Certificate (PgCert), Postgraduate Diploma (PgDip) – at your own pace and without needing to attend classes on campus. 

During the Online Learning Open Days you will have the opportunity to listen to live presentations, ask your questions to live staff and current students, and browse Exhibition Booths which include useful videos, links and resources.
