We understand that studying full-time isn’t practical or feasible for everyone. That’s why we let you choose how and when you study. Depending on your course, you can study online or part-time. This means the amount of time spent on campus is kept to a minimum. To help you balance work, life and study, you can spread the load over Summer and Winter terms too.
Getting you job-ready is at the heart of what we do.
Learn from experienced teachers who remain connected to their industries. Make contacts, receive valuable career advice and become immediately competitive in the global job market.
Our courses are well recognised by professional organisations. We have close ties with industry and provide invaluable workplace experience. Industry representatives shape our curriculum, providing guest presenters, team projects and six- to 12-month paid professional placements for students.
All of these experiences empower you with a greater chance of employment – even before you graduate.
