Online Short Courses

Part-time, online and delivered at Master’s level, you can learn without having to take time off work or commit to the cost of a full degree.  For the most part, course hours aren’t fixed, so you can set your own study hours, while some courses are ‘always-on’, so you can enrol and study whenever you like, 24/7. You can build qualifications, including Master’s degrees, one short course at a time. 

Students taking individual short courses benefit from the same level of support as those taking full postgraduate programmes, including access to a full suite of learning resources you can access anywhere.

Online Degrees

By studying for an online qualification at the University of Aberdeen, you will have all the practical advantages of fitting your learning around your location, work and personal commitments. Our online programmes are  taught by the same outstanding academics as our on-campus programmes – the only difference is the flexible mode of delivery.

We use a variety of formats to help you learn, including videos, text, audio and case studies,  and you can access various online resources through our award-winning Sir Duncan Rice Library. Communicating with academics, support staff and other students via email, discussion boards and Skype, you will be guided through your programme as you gain skills to take your career to the next level.
