How we work?

Students learn through a blended learning model which combines face-to-face learning and practice, online forums, specially prepared interactive study material which can be accessed via mobile, tablet, computer or students can print activities and assignments. Every student has access to online materials through the College’s dedicated ymoodle site, where they will submit completed assessments. As a blended learning programme this means that students’ study when it is convenient to them.

They can access activities, resources and materials any time of the day or night, 7 days a week from our virtual learning environment – ymoodle.org.
