All of our modules use GCULearn, the university's virtual learning environment, which provides course materials, reading resources, assessments and feedback are all available online. It is also used to enable students to undertake online activities and tasks, listen to podcasts, be involved in online discussion groups, and take part in blogs and Twitter-based learning activities.

We regularly invite in guest lecturers from industry to show our students the practical relevance of the academic material they are covering.

The programme is also designed to allow graduates access to a wide range of careers within the business and public sectors and within academia.
