If you are considering developing your skills and knowledge while serving or during your resettlement period, University of Derby Online Learning (UDOL) could be the right route for you …

What is University of Derby Online Learning (UDOL)?

As the thriving online learning division of the University of Derby, UDOL is dedicated to providing part-time online degree programmes, professional courses and CPD opportunities to people around the world who require more flexible study options. 

Are the courses demanding, and would you recommend studying while still serving? 

Online learning actually supports students, by placing fewer demands on them. For traditional academic study students have to attend a fixed location at a fixed time, which can be difficult for those busy working in different locations at unpredictable times. Online learning allows students to engage with their study remotely and flexibly. 

How interactive and engaging is online learning?

UDOL prides itself on interactive courses. Gone are the days of a lone student staring at a computer. Instead the computer or mobile device is their gateway to a whole community of students from across the world, with whom they can constantly interact while being supported by a professional academic team.

What funding is available to military personnel? 

As someone who has served, or is serving, in HM Armed Forces you are entitled to ELCAS funding, which you can read all about in great detail in this magazine.

What courses does UDOL offer?

UDOL offers more than 40 different courses, from Environmental Health to MBA Global, to 3,000-plus online distance learners located all around the world.

Is an online degree as good as one from a ‘bricks and mortar’ university?

An online degree is exactly the same. The only thing that differs is the mode of study.
