Designed to suit your needs
Whether you're studying for a BA, BSc, a Foundation degree or any other qualification, we design our courses to be as flexible as possible.
You can study in ways to suit you and your life – and in some cases, you don’t even need to be on campus.
Our online prospectus will tell you more about the course options available - just use the left hand menu to select your preferences.
Here is a quick guide to our study modes.
A full-time honours degree usually takes 3-4 years. A full-time foundation degree or HND usually takes 2-3 years.
Studying part-time means you can fit your studies alongside work or family commitments. Typically a part-time honours degree takes 6 years. A part-time foundation degree or HND usually takes 3-4 years.
A sandwich course combines study with valuable work experience. For one year you go on placement within your chosen industry - this usually takes place between the second and third year of your degree, making it a ‘sandwich’. These courses will typically be for 4 years. Students who choose the sandwich route find it helps with both their studies and getting a job after graduation.
Distance Learning and e-learning
With distance and e-learning, you don’t have to be on campus to learn. You can study at home or wherever you want to be. You learn through self-study, using web-based and printed resources.
To get even more from your university experience, why not spread your wings and spend some time studying abroad? On most of our courses you can study for one or two semesters abroad. Not only do you discover exciting new places and cultures, but this once-in-a-lifetime experience can really boost your future job prospects. You’ll be learning new skills that are much prized by employers.
We offer two types of programmes:
- Erasmus exchange – within Europe
- International exchange – outside Europe
