Online learning is a brilliant way to further your knowledge, skills and career opportunities wherever you are in the world.
It offers flexible study options that allow you to fit in your existing professional or personal commitments around your studies and enable you to work in your own time, at your own pace.
At Manchester Metropolitan University, a dedicated online learning portal allows you to manage your studies remotely while enjoying an immersive and fulfilling learner experience.
We’ve worked with online learning experts to create a platform that helps you make the most of your course. Complete with a range of tools, downloadable materials and community-focused features, the platform will allow you to:
You will need a minimum of a 2mps connection along with headphones and a microphone to use the video conferencing software.
In order for the platform to work correctly you should be running the latest versions of the main browsers such as Chrome, Firefox, Safari and InternetExplorer/Edge. Your PC should also be running Windows 7 or later, or OS X 10.9 or later. Mobile devices should be running the latest versions of iOS or Android. If you would like to test if you have the basic technology requirements to run the platform please click here.
Although these are the basic requirements technology platforms do change and additional browser plugins, settings, apps etc. may be required and will be advised from time to time by your Student Support Advisor.

“The Virtual Learning Environment is comprehensive and provides links to social spaces, as well as required reading. Being able to login from anywhere is useful - I can make use of any free time I have and get on with reading and group activities.”
“A Global Online MBA was a natural choice because I have to juggle a full time job and family responsibilities. What particularly attracted me to Manchester Metropolitan University was the fact that it is a globally focused degree, with live weekly seminars and regular group tasks and discussions - all of this enables students to learn from each other and helps them feel less isolated.”
