Study online with Oxford

Study whenever it suits you, from anywhere in the world. 

Virtual weekly classes

Classes in our Weekly Oxford Worldwide (WOW) programme are delivered online as interactive, fully-tutored courses. You'll have access to recorded lectures and course materials, and will join ten live, tutor-led sessions.  

The ‘live-time’ sessions replicate our face-to-face teaching in Oxford. As a student, you will take part in real-time discussion and debate with your classmates and course tutor. Class sizes are kept small to maximise interaction.

Coursework is an integral part of the learning process, and you are expected to complete assignments in order to benefit fully from the course.

Short online courses

Can't join a live class? Our short online courses take place in a virtual learning environment and are run asynchronously – meaning there are no live-time meetings and you do not have to be online at any specific time to take the course. 

The 10-week modular format of each course offers you the time to study at your own pace, while keeping to a weekly schedule. 

Interaction between you and your classmates and tutor takes place in online forums, where you will engage in in-depth discussions and receive personalised tutor guidance and feedback. Coursework is an integral part of all our short online courses; you should expect to complete assignments as part of your course.

Certificate of Higher Education

Credit earned from our short onine courses and WOW classes is transferable towards our award programme, the Certificate of Higher Education - a part-time undergraduate course in which you study a main subject discipline, but also undertake study in other academic subjects.
