All of our IDL programmes have been designed to provide you with the resources you need to successfully complete your studies:
- Our comprehensive study materials are made available through the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE).
- As an IDL student you will have 24/7 access to Heriot-Watt's Online Library services from which you can access further materials to help you with your studies.
- You will have access to discussion boards which allow you to make contact with your tutors and other students.
The majority of courses are assessed by examination, however some may be a combination of coursework and examination or coursework only. For more information about the assessment procedures, please contact the Programme Leader of your preferred programme.
Exams for distance learning students are usually organised in each student's country of residence through the British Council or other partners. Please note that this is not possible for all countries, but we do endeavour to accommodate everyone we can.
