As well as campus-based postgraduate study, the School of Energy, Geoscience, Infrastructure and Society offers a wide range of programmes via Independent Distance Learning (IDL). The outcomes of our IDL programmes are identical to those of our on-campus programmes.

As an IDL student you will:

  • receive the same qualification as on-campus students;
  • study the same courses with course materials made available online;
  • have a similar workload to part-time students;
  • have access to academic support and student support services;
  • have flexibility regarding when and where you study.
I chose to study by Independent Distance Learning because I did not want to stop the valuable learning on the actual job while gaining the necessary academic training.
