The University of Birmingham invests heavily in providing state-of-the-art academic facilities for all students, whether attending campus or studying remotely. In recent years they have developed their virtual learning platform, Canvas, to provide postgraduate distance learning students with the same quality of education that their on-campus peers experience.
This includes a raft of services, including full access to course content and learning resources such as the university’s digital library, which contains hundreds of thousands of books, journals and academic publications.
Courses are delivered by the same professors and lecturers who teach the campus-based courses, using innovative teaching methods and the latest academic software and technology. 24/7 technical support is also available, and remote learning students benefit from the same programme of support services as their campus counterparts, including health and wellbeing, academic and financial support, and career services.
