Teaching and learning
On a distance learning course, you will study in your own time on a part-time basis, so you can combine achieving a qualification with work or family commitments.
Teaching is through specially prepared course materials and other directed reading. Each module is made up of one to three written assignments. There are discussion boards on our virtual learning environment (Blackboard) which let you engage with tutors and other students; these also contribute to your assessment.
A range of assessments are used across the course including case studies, presentations (via Skype) and research reports.
There is also an annual course conference at Leicester.
The course has been amazing. It’s given me a broad range of skills and I can apply the theory and concepts to my current role.
