                          Your degree will have the same small classes as on-campus students, and
                          you will be assessed in the same way.

                          The lecturers who teach students on-campus are the same lecturers who
                          teach online learning students. You have access to online streaming, and
                          lecturers will engage with you in live sessions, so you will still feel a part of a
                          community of learning.

                          Your student experience will not be complete unless you are given the
                          chance to meet the other young like-minded students with whom you’ve
                          started the online journey. This is why you will have the flexibility to transition
                          back to on-campus learning, if you would like to.

                          All of this means is that the level of quality in the delivery of your educational

                          experience is the same as that delivered on campus.
