Distance learning programmes allow more flexible study for students.

There are many pressures on students: some may have family responsibilities making full-time study difficult; some have a job they do not want to or cannot leave. Flexible learning provides opportunities to undertake study to suit changing your circumstances and lifestyle.

At Heriot-Watt, we offer two learning paths:

  • Online Learning MSc and PG Diploma programmes are based out of Heriot-Watt's Edinburgh Campus but no classes are attended.
  • Approved Learning Partners are approved by Heriot-Watt University. A range of MSc, PG Diploma, and some undergraduate programmes are offered through this route.
