Which is why we’re going to be offering online learning for our Business, Professional, Part-Time and Degree students soon, which will allow you the flexibility to learn at your own pace fitting your studies around your life. You’ll have all the resources, access to facilities, and student support as any other student, with the option to either learn from the comfort of your own home or on campus.

We’ll be launching the offer soon, so make sure to check back to find out more details and apply for your new course.
