Since 1991, the Learning at Work department at the University of Portsmouth has helped thousands of busy, professional people to gain a UK degree by enabling them to learn new skills and advance their careers whilst remaining at work.

Learning at Work provides a wide range of work-based and distance learning courses at both undergraduate and postgraduate level.

The key benefit to you is that you can tailor your learning to suit your professional and personal needs.

Our programme aims to develop your abilities in the workplace using professional standards of competency.

Your employer should experience a direct benefit and see an improvement in your performance due to the work-based nature of your study.

Your projects will be commercially valuable to your organisation and will exhibit your enhanced strategic awareness and knowledge of best practice. In turn, your increased motivation and improved performance will undoubtedly lead to further professional opportunities and career progression.

Unlike conventional part-time study or distance learning, you are mainly assessed on what you do at work, which reduces the amount of time you need to spend studying.

What our students say: 'The initial stages of mapping across my experience to the correct level of learning was very beneficial. The induction helped get my mindset back into academia, and provided tools to enhance my learning experience'. Stephen Lillie, Army. MSc Engineering and Management 

Employers endorsement: 'As someone who has both gained their MSc through this route and sponsored others, I continue to recommend this route to colleagues within my organisation'. Duncan McClement, Divisional Officer, Royal Navy.

As the University of Portsmouth is at the forefront of work-based learning, we are very familiar with students from the Armed Forces, taking into account of in-Service training, recognition of prior learning and current employment.
