Network learning-computer conferencing

Network learning is the most popular means of study for our organizational psychology students. You can study at a distance via network learning for the following postgraduate courses:

This mode of teaching retains all the flexibility of a distance learning programme but avoids the isolation often experienced on conventional distance learning programmes. Find out what our students have to say by watching our video.

The delivery of programmes via computer conferencing enables you to study from anywhere in the world, at any time - from home, from work or on the train. By contributing to online discussion forums, you will discuss topics in tutored groups of 15-20. Within a structured three-term teaching year, you can contribute to the conferencing 'discussion' at the times that suit you best. All contributions are stored, and you have the benefit of being able to make reflective and considered contributions, as well as being able to print out everyone's contributions, forming a permanent record of the discussion on a particular topic.

Computer conferencing is combined with specially written subject guides and resource packs of essential reading material and attendance at termly weekend workshops.

Weekend workshops

There are five weekend workshops that all MSc Network Learning students must attend. The workshops are all  run from late afternoon on Friday through to lunchtime on Sunday: there are evening activities at all the workshops. The workshops take place here at Birtkbeck in Central London.
