Blended Learning

Although our online courses are designed to be as interactive and accessible as possible, we like to offer students, when possible, the option to complement online learning with face to face contact. 

Typically our online learners can complement their studies with an intensive series of face to face discussions and supervisions on the topics covered during the online course. If you are interested in blended learning opportunities, please let us know and we will contact you if and when such opportunities become available where you are. This option is open across the UK and abroad.
