Benefits of online learning

There are many benefits to learning online.

Study anytime, anywhere

No fixed schedule means you choose when and where you study, and who with. Foster connections and friendships, expand your networks. Read journal articles, watch lectures and contribute to discussions at times and locations that suit you.

Learn together

During welcome week you will meet your course colleagues online; and tutors who are available for academic guidance and support. You have opportunities to engage in peer-to-peer learning throughout the course and with social activities via live discussion forums and collaborate sessions in our virtual learning experience platform. Here you can build your network while you learn, develop and progress together, as a connected cohort.

Unlock your future potential

An online course opens opportunities for you to be a career developer or career switcher. Take it to the next level, stand out from the crowd, develop your passion.

A global network

Learning online doesn't mean learning alone. Regular contact with students from around the world and our academic staff here in Teesside supports and encourages collaborative learning. Foster connections and friendships, expand your networks.

Quality programmes

Our online programmes deliver future-facing learning. They are informed by industry and underpinned by over 30 years of open learning experience. Academically equivalent to our on-campus degrees, the programmes involve the same quality and level of work overall, but at a time and place to suit you.

Access to support services

You have access to the same support services as on-campus students, which includes millions of learning resources such as ebooks and journal articles, available 24/7. From tutor support to an in-person graduation, your sense of belonging is enabled through our community of online learners.
