Marking and feedback on your assignment.
If you study online there is
lots of tutor support. There are live webinars run by experienced
tutor/practitioners with the opportunity for lots of interaction, which are
also recorded for later playback. There are regular, lively online
discussions about contemporary practice. Our online learning centre makes
virtual networking with other practitioners possible too. Unlike lots of online
learning your tutor is with you all the way – you aren’t left on your own to
work through lots of static content. Your tutor will be keeping in touch and
encouraging you all the way.
