Student Experience

Study materials

All learning and assessment will be delivered online through the Coursera platform using a range of methods including:

  • Video lectures
  • Podcasts
  • Directed reading including books and articles accessed through University of London’s online library
  • Live sessions with academics
  • Prompts to create a personalised study journal
  • Discussion forums moderated by an online tutor
  • Practice quizzes

Online support
You will receive access to your Student Portal when you register. You can then access your University of London email account and two other key resources:

  • The Coursera platform. Here, you can access electronic copies of all study materials, resources (including audio-visual), and forums to discuss course material and work collaboratively with others.
  • Access to academic support and feedback from London-based support teams. Tutors introduce the modules, respond to queries, monitor discussions and provide guidance on assessments. Utilize interactive and engaging study materials including videos and quizzes.

Lectures

The lectures in your module give an overview of key concepts and have been designed to complement the other learning activities. The recorded lectures in your module may be video, audio only or a mix of both and will be accompanied by an interactive transcript.

Mobile

Access your courses from anywhere — you can even download them to your mobile device and study offline wherever and whenever you choose.

Forums

Interact with fellow students through course forums. Get access to every question asked and answered by previous students.

The programme is offered twice per year in April and October.

Applications for the Spring 2023 cohort will open in December 2022.

If you have a question please contact the University of London via the Student Enquiry System.
