You’ll be given access to an easy-to-use virtual learning system that houses your syllabi and assignments and gives you access to discussion groups. Before you start the course, you’ll take part in a webinar to make sure you understand the learning platform, how to use its resources and answer any questions you have so you’re set up for a successful term. You’ll log on to each virtual class and complete assignments and exams, just like you would in a traditional university course, but online. You’ll also interact with your teachers and fellow students frequently through lively discussion forums.

The application deadline varies by course and start date, so review your course of choice for the details.
