Based on Credits for MOOCs

You can now take advantage of online courses to learn at your own pace and at a time that suits you, whilst still working toward gaining your degree of choice. You will be guided by inspiring lecturers from a number of high-ranking international universities, from Australia to Switzerland to our own campus – and have the opportunity to study and engage with committed students from around the world.

On completion of the online course and on successful final assessment (this can vary, from a written exam here at our campus to a digital oral assessment with the lecturer) you will receive credits for your grade list. You can use these credits, subject to approval and regular procedures, as part of your minor, elective or honours programme. 

Easy enrolment, great advantages

Enrolment in these courses is easy – it only takes three steps! – and you get many benefits. What we need from you is a clear commitment to engage with the course and stay with the programme, so that you don’t miss out on the benefits and we – and our partner universities - are able to maintain high-standards of participation and completion.
