Online study at the University of Exeter
As a member of the prestigious Russell Group of universities, we are committed to maintaining the very best research, an outstanding teaching and learning experience, and unrivalled links with business and the public sector.
All our students, both on campus and online, benefit from access to academics who are leaders in their fields and are passionate about bringing their latest research into the classroom. They will challenge you to explore new ideas, ask questions and solve problems. By studying an online Masters at the University of Exeter, you’ll discover how to direct your own learning and take an active part in creating knowledge, ensuring you learn how to think and not simply what to think. You’ll get to collaborate with academics and other students and develop understandings that make an impact in both your professional and personal life.
Why study online?
Online study provides a flexible approach to postgraduate education, enabling you to enhance your career without interrupting it. In a world where we only seem to get busier and career progression is only one of the many plates we spin, online study answers the call of business professionals like you looking to upskill without taking a pause. Online study provides the ultimate flexibility to dictate not just when you study, but what you study meaning you can tailor your programme to meet your needs.
Why study online with us?
Our online masters degrees are of equal value to our on-campus qualifications and every bit as academically challenging. They offer flexibility to students with established careers as well as entrepreneurs looking to enhance their leadership skills while also growing their business.
Learn at your own pace
We understand that juggling personal and work commitments with online study can be a challenge. That’s why we put you in the driving seat; you create a schedule that enables you to study alongside continuing to achieve your professional goals. For ultimate flexibility, we offer three start dates throughout the year and the option to take breaks when you need, as long as you complete your studies within five years. We also offer the option of undertaking PGCert and PGDip qualifications, which can then be upgraded to a Masters when time or financial commitments allow.
Enhance your career
Studying with us not only offers outstanding opportunities for career development, but also the chance to tap into a worldwide peer and business network. Additionally, learning in a virtual environment both enhances and demonstrates vital skills that employers are seeking in the modern workplace, such as communication and time management skills, the ability to self-motivate and direct, and an ease with emerging digital technologies.
How does teaching and learning online work?
All your learning will be accessed online in our all-encompassing Exeter Learning Environment (ELE), including:
- Teaching materials – as written, recorded, or animated content
- Quizzes to check your learning and understanding
- Videos, podcasts, articles to read
- Access to electronic books
Your learning will be divided up into a weekly schedule so you can see what work you should aim to get through on a weekly basis. We’ve built in time for preparation and submission of any assessments you have and then time for you to get feedback on those before you decide to sign up and pay for your next module.
