For students who want to advance their knowledge and careers
The Virtual Learning Environment, VLE for short, is our digital alternative to the University of Sussex’s campus. It’s a one stop shop where your lectures and learning materials will be stored, where you’ll interact with fellow students and academics, and get information about your course. The VLE is easy to use, easy to navigate and accessible 24 hours a day.
You’ll be able to view live streaming lectures or seminars through the VLE, and access recordings of them at a time and place that suits you. All supporting materials for your course are stored in the VLE, as well as a wealth of other resources like research papers, articles, podcasts, suggested readings and viewings.
You’ll use the VLE to ‘meet-up’ with your fellow students and academic teams, discuss the course, assignments and support each other through your studies.
The VLE will give you information about fees, module and assessment dates. You’ll also be able to find contact details of the student support teams who’ll support you through your studies until graduation.
Flexible study to fit around your life and career
One of the key factors we consider when developing our online courses is the flexibility required by our students. As well as delivering courses via the VLE, allowing you to study when and wherever you like, courses are designed using a carousel module, with modules starting every two months. This means if you need to take a break from your studies at any time, you can simply ‘step-off’ the course and re-join once you have the time to concentrate on your studies again.
