Which course should I choose?

There's a lot to consider when you're trying to decide about studying at university. Our courses offer you flexibility in several ways:

  • course level
  • how you study: full or part-time
  • when and where you study: face-to-face or via distance learning
  • academic staff are available by appointment at mutually convenient times to meet with students

If you're still wondering which course would be best for you, read our guidelines (below) or you can contact us.
Course titles are linked to prospectus pages which give you details about subjects studied, mode of study and education or career progression.

Online/distance learning courses

Our distance learning courses are specifically designed for people living in the UK and overseas who are unable to attend our face-to-face lectures. The Distance Learning option for our courses is indicated on each course's prospectus page which will give you more information about when and how you'll study, field classes, examination procedures and much more.
