Looking to expand your career options or work towards a qualification whilst in employment? Our Distance Learning options allow you to study in a way that suits you, allowing you to study online, to attain a Postgraduate Certificate, Postgraduate Diploma or complete a full MSc.
Our flexible learning options currently are:
Distance learning (part-time over 3 years)
Our Distance Learning courses allow you to complete an MSc online, without attending modules at our Glasgow campus. This means you can study for one of our Postgraduate Degrees available via Distance Learning, while balancing your existing work and family commitments. This option is suitable for students located anywhere in the world.
Modules are taught using online material (e.g. by video, podcasts, webinars and presentation), meaning you can study at a time that suits you.
You’ll have full access to online materials and will be able to chat with your tutors and fellow students via email, online forums and live webchats. We also have a dedicated staff member who can answer any questions you have and can help support you through your studies.
Students normally complete the full MSc degree part-time over 3 years, or may choose to exit earlier with a Postgraduate Certificate or Postgraduate Diploma award. Pro-rata fees are paid on an annual basis at the start of each year of study. Details of the fees and funding can be found on the MSc website below.
