Modes of Delivery
The Foundation Year in Management Studies seeks prospective students interested in different modes of delivery, while forms of assessment and teaching are kept equal.
Are you a prospective Face-2-face student?
Then you will experience a traditional UK learning environment, within an international context and will attend face-2-face lectures and seminars in our London classrooms. You will also have access to a variety of physical and online resources, such as access to MyNCU, our comprehensive VLE.
Are you a prospective Distance Learner?
You might prefer to study online, because of other personal and/or professional commitments, or because you live too far from our London campus. Whatever your reasons to consider our distance learning option, you will have access to our extensive online materials through MyNCU, our dedicated VLE. You will also benefit from a tutoring system and support, to maximise your learning experience. In fact, as distance learner you will be able to connect with online and traditional peers through a chat room feature in your MyNCU Personal Page, and be part of team challenges and team projects. To give you the complete experience, intensive seminar opportunities are planned during weekends, and you may choose to participate through MyNCU to lectures and seminars in real time.
