Virtual campus

On campus and online studies

Students in the on campus model can choose between attending live lectures on-campus or online via the virtual campus. In the virtual campus, you’ll have access to private lectures rooms, that only you, your lecturers, and the other students in your programme can attend. These lecture rooms are open to you during the weekly scheduled lecture time, and they act just like an on-campus lecture room: you attend the lecture, ask questions, discuss study topics and talk to your fellow students and your lecturer. The only difference is that you can do it from home – or anywhere in the world, even when you’re on vacation.
