The university’s taught postgraduate programmes build up specialist knowledge through theory and applied practice, using a system of core and elective modules in combination with independent research projects.
Classes are delivered with interactive seminars and video lectures, with collaborative group work and worldwide peer-to-peer interaction through the university’s virtual learning platform, Canvas. Classes are taught by the same lecturers and professors who instruct on campus, who bring the same energy and enthusiasm to their online content.
The University of Birmingham is a top university, with a huge network of research groups conducting high-level enquiry into some of the biggest challenges in academia and society.

The University of Birmingham launched their first portfolio of 100 per cent online postgraduate degree courses in 2015, and these now represent some of the longest established and most successful of their kind anywhere in the UK.
The online curriculum is every bit as expansive and engaging as the on-campus courses, and provides an impressively personalised learning experience, backed up with a fantastic network of support services.
Distance learning gives a great deal of flexibility, and enables postgraduate students to organise their studies around existing work or personal commitments, as well as the opportunity to complete one of Birmingham’s top-quality courses from anywhere in the world.
