How it works
Studying online is a great way to conveniently take courses online without limitation to space and geo graphical region.

Course materials for online students are made available online through the Virtual Learning Platform (Moodle). The VLP links you with our expert academics and course materials through videos, webinars, articles, journals, assessments and discussion boards.
