How you'll learn with us

Our part-time, online courses fit around you. Forget visas and moving costs. With an online degree from the University of Portsmouth, you can access your course from anywhere in the world.

We use Moodle, an easy-to-use Digital Learning Environment (DLE). All you need is regular access to a computer and an internet connection. All modules, learning activities and assessments are delivered online.

We know you have a busy life, and we don’t think you should have to sacrifice your studies. To keep things manageable, your course modules are broken down into weekly segments. This allows you to fit your studies around work, family and social life.
