Earn an internationally accredited postgraduate qualification
All our degrees are internationally accredited. You can see the different levels of degree offered on each degree's description page.
You'll see specific requirements for your degree under the “what experience do you need” section on its degree pages. You can study from any country, but you'll need to meet the minimum language requirements outlined on the degree page.
Study part time and flexibly
The amount of time it takes to complete a degree varies depending on how many programs you study at once, when you start your study and if you take any breaks.
You can see the time required for each program on its program description page. Within each program there will be weeks of assessment which will require more time, and we'll tell you this clearly in advance.
As degrees are made of programs (each earning you a credit), you can pause at the end of a program, returning when you want to do another.
You will need to discuss with your tutor at the university offering the degree if you want to arrange a pause in your study. The amount of time you can pause for will vary between universities but the credit you’ve earned will remain valid.
Costs, payment and financial support
Degrees vary in price depending on the subject.
Some degrees you have to pay for upfront, paying for the whole qualification in one go. Others you can buy a program at a time, building to the level that you want. This allows you to space out your purchasing and decide later what degree you want to work towards.
We currently only take payment through partner university sites, so how you pay is decided by the university who have created the degree.
Moving to a different degree once you've started
Once you've enrolled, you can still move to a different degree within the same discipline, e.g. from a Masters to a Graduate Certificate within the same subject if one is available. To do this, contact your tutor at the university. Once you complete the programs required for your degree of your choice, you will be awarded the qualification.
