What is blended learning?

Do you want to study for a degree, but feel like you just don’t have the time to fit it into your life? Our blended learning courses combine innovative online learning with traditional, face-to-face classes to give you a more flexible way to study.

How does it work?

The face-to-face hours are delivered as a part-time course would be, but with the additional independent online learning, you can still complete your degree in 3 years*. This blended approach means you can study anytime, anywhere and your tutors and support teams can be contacted outside of the classroom, online or over the phone.

When can I study?

Requiring just 8 hours of classes a week at your chosen study centre, you will have the opportunity to select when you want to learn: weekdays, evenings or weekends.

  • Weekdays: 2 days per week either 9.00–13.00 or 13.30-17.30
  • Evenings**: 2 evenings per week 17.30–21.30
  • Weekends: Saturdays

Blended learning FAQs

What is blended learning?

This new way of learning and studying provides the best of face-to-face and online learning. You attend 8 hours of regular classroom sessions at our study centre with other students and the rest of the time you access materials and resources such as tutorials, lessons and exercises online, working at your own pace. You upload coursework and assignments to a secure online zone with easy access to a tutor via Skype, email, webchat or phone. Our blended learning model enables you to complete a full three-year degree, with just 2 days face-to-face commitment per week in one of our study centres in London, Birmingham or Manchester. Find out more here.

Do I need a computer?

You’ll need a connected device to access and download learning materials. Ideally this will be a computer, but you can also access ilearn through many different devices such as mobile phones, tablets and laptops, or your local library may have resources you can use. Additionally if you choose to study at one of our UK study centres you will have access to their computer rooms. Go to our Study Centre page for more information.

I work full time and have a family. Can I still study?

Online learning is all about flexibility. We believe everybody should have access to higher education, no matter what his or her circumstance. You can study from as little as eight hours per week depending on your course and you can study at your own pace. With so many ways to access your learning resources, be it by laptop, phone or tablet, you can fit study around your life.
