How you will study

Part-time Study:
Our part-time delivery mode combines aspects of distance learning and on-campus delivery. You will benefit from the support of the virtual learning environment but also face-to-face interaction with tutors and classmates.

The University's virtual learning environment, CampusMoodle, gives you access from home/remotely to your learning materials (including videos, e-books and journals).

During the course of your degree you are required to attend a 10 day leadership week which takes place in the last week of May in your second year.

You will need to factor in the cost for travel, accommodation and subsistence for these 10 days.

This event brings together a number of speakers from academia and industry. During the event there will be a mix of academic and practical workshops. Each session will explore a different aspect of leadership and aims to enhance students’ skills and provide an opportunity to network.

The event will be hosted in the modern facilities at Aberdeen Business School, Garthdee.
