The University of Greenwich is a British university with campuses in South-East London and North Kent. University of Greenwich, School of Architecture and Construction offers Distance Learning courses for those wishing to study outside the UK; the programmes are delivered through regional centres including Hong Kong, China, Trinidad and the UK. Each centre offers two study schools each year when staff from the University introduce courses and programmes, discuss teaching and learning strategies and deliver key lectures.
The centres also provide students with a range of facilities including library and IT. All students have full access to the University's resources including the electronic journal collection, on-line textbooks and OSCARS - Off-Campus Services and Remote Support. OSCARS has been developed by the University to improve support for students studying off-campus, including distance learners.
When studying one of our distance learning programmes, students are provided with study guides and supporting texts. Increasing use is made of electronic information sources and an online community is being developed for students. Students are invited to their learning centres at the start of the autumn and spring terms, giving them an opportunity to speak to tutors and other students.
