Learning Remotely FAQs

Find out more about learning remotely with COL.

With uncertainty still surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic, we know there’s never been a more important time to stay connected. With no on-campus teaching being considered currently, we've decided to offer all of our courses remotely using online platforms appropriate to the subject area being taught.

We've all experienced challenges during the Covid-19 pandemic and many of us have been thrown into a world of remote communication, working and staying in touch with family and friends in an online environment. We hope this means the prospect of learning with us remotely isn't too daunting, however if you do have any queries or concerns, we've put together some FAQs that can help you find out more about remote learning with the Centre for Open Learning.


Why are courses still being taught remotely?

All 21/22 Term 1 Short Courses (running from September to December 2021) will be taught online.

This is due to the latest government guidance that the University has received. The current social distancing requirements makes group work and rooming very difficult and the safety of our students remains our number one priority. We hope that we will be able to offer our Short Courses on campus soon but again, we will be guided by the latest government advice.
