Entry Requirements

Online courses such as those offered by MOOCs require no entry


The majority of courses will have various specific requirements.

These may include prior educational qualifications.

In most cases, you will need to obtain entry requirements direct from the university or college.

You apply direct to the course provider.

A typical online admission procedure is:

Fill in the online application form.

You’ll receive a reply from the university or college, offering you a place, asking for more information, or declining your application.

The institution will want confirmation that you have the qualifications you say you have. After checking your certificates, they will send you confirmation that you’ve been accepted onto the course.

Enrolment usually takes place a few weeks before the course starts. You get the opportunity to select the modules you wish to study and pay the first instalment of your course fees.

On receipt of payment the university or college will email your confirmation and you can begin your studies.
