E-Learning courses

One of the most significant benefits of E-Learning is that it gives you the convenience of learning independent of time and place constraints.

Our E-Learning packages enable you to be able to learn at any time and place convenient to you, it is also very cost effective.

Degrees are the traditional academic route suitable for students with higher entry qualifications. Degrees are typically studied over three years full-time.

But there are other ways to complete a Degree at the University Centre at Blackburn College.

If you have a Foundation Degree already then you may choose to ‘top-up’ your Foundation Degree to Honours level. You should look out for the ‘Top Up’ courses that run alongside the Foundation Degree courses.

If you do not have the necessary entry requirements for an Honours degree you may still be able to join one of our Honours degrees with Foundation Entry. These last four years (full-time) but your first year will focus on preparing you for Honours level study.

We can help you choose the right Degree for your future career.
