As an online student, you will be given access to our Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). This is the platform where you will find your study timetable, view interactive lecturecasts, contribute to discussion forums, access module resources (including our online library) and submit your assignments. All programmes are broken up into modules that are assigned a credit value (often 15 credits) and run over several consecutive weeks. You will be allocated a tutor for each module who will guide you through your studies, run online tutorials and mark your assignments.
Our online postgraduate degrees are developed and taught with the same rigour as our on-campus programmes. Studying online, part-time, gives you greater flexibility to study your master’s degree around your other commitments, but there is no difference in the level of qualification, or the ability and aptitude you need to earn it.
We are pleased to offer several discounts and scholarships to students, including a full payment discount if you pay all your tuition fees upfront, and an alumni discount if you are a previous graduate from the University of Liverpool. Find out more about our latest discounts or scholarships on our dedicated webpage, here.
When you are ready to submit your application, please make sure that you have the following documents ready to attach to our electronic form.
· An official form of photo ID (e.g. your passport, driving licence or government ID)
· Your CV
· Prior qualification certificate(s) (e.g. your degree certificate and transcript and/or any professional qualification certificates)
To reduce fraud, we are obliged to carry out a series of validation checks on all student documentation. This process may also require us to request additional information and supporting documentation.
Once you have accepted your offer and paid your deposit you will be enrolled onto your chosen programme. Our admissions team will transfer you to our student services team who will arrange your induction on your chosen start date.
Your award will state the name of the programme that you have completed. There is no reference to the mode of study on your certificate. It is exactly the same as one awarded to on-campus students, reflecting the equality of the award.
