How does it work?
Blended learning involves face to face, on campus, teaching, including eight hours of time-tabled classes spread over two mornings, afternoons, or evenings, at one of our study centres. This study mode provides an element of structure to your day, where you’ll join your fellow classmates at specific times to learn.
Students are then required to complete the rest of their studies online at a time and place that suits them.
With blended learning you can choose to study weekdays:
