We have developed an effective approach to your programme of study, blending face-to-face and online teaching. Our experience has shown that this new method of teaching opens new learning opportunities for all, enabling you to develop graduate skills such as time management, workload prioritisation and effective research skills.

This academic year you will have an induction as part of your welcome to the college, this will allow you to get to know your peers and the staff.  Some of the delivery will be online using Microsoft Teams but there will be taught sessions in college where you will have opportunities to meet up with fellow students and teaching staff.

We will be taking a hybrid approach to your learning where we will blend learning on campus with online learning and assessment resources.
