You might be asking…

  • What if my course has a residential school?

    A residential school (or res school) is a short, intensive learning experience where you come on campus for a few days.

    Res schools are a fantastic way to connect with your online classmates. Have fun putting into practice what you’ve learned, with the friendly guidance of your expert academics. Some of our courses have subjects with compulsory res schools, so you’ll need to attend these to successfully pass your course.

    When you attend a res school it won’t cost you a fortune. An easy option is to stay on campus at our budget-friendly accommodation. We'll even cook for you, so you can kick back and relax.

    Depending on where you live, and which campus you’ll be travelling to for res school, you may need to consider travel costs. Check out our scholarships and grants to see if you’re eligible for a residential school equity grant.

  • Can I advance my career sooner with credit?

    Quite possibly. If you’ve completed related study or have recognised industry experience, you could be eligible for credit towards your degree. Explore ways you can fast-track your course with recognition of prior learning, or get in touch with our friendly team to discuss your options.

  • Which level of study should I choose?

    It all comes down to your career goals and experience.

    Depending on your previous study and industry experience, you may be able to enrol directly into a master’s degree. Alternatively, you can start with a graduate certificate or graduate diploma.

    If you meet the admission requirements, most of our postgraduate degrees allow you to enrol into the master’s and, if you prefer, you can exit early with a graduate certificate or diploma. Find out more about levels of study.
