Online courses are structured as weekly online meetings; interaction with the course tutor and other students takes place in a virtual learning environment. The online courses are designed to fit around your schedule; you access the course whenever it is convenient for you.
Choose from over 60 courses across a range of disciplines. Most are short courses of 5-10 weeks in duration. A few longer courses result in Oxford qualifications at the undergraduate, advanced diploma and postgraduate levels. Some courses are designed to help you acquire and update essential skills for your professional development.
Use your online course credit for an Oxford Award
Credit earned from our online short courses is now transferable towards our new award programme, the Certificate of Higher Education. This course will launch in the autumn of 2012, with applications being accepted in January 2012.
The Certificate of Higher Education is a part-time course, lasting between two and four years – depending on how intensively you wish to study.
Students choose a main subject discipline in which they do most of their classes, but they combine this with study in other academic subjects.
The course enables students to use the credit that they obtain from taking weekly classes, short online courses, linked day schools, practical weekends and attendance at the Oxford University Summer School for Adults to count towards gaining the award.
