Master of Learning Sciences and Technology

Graduate Certificate, Graduate Diploma


Most units of study within the Master of Learning Sciences and Technology programs are offered as a combination of online and face-to-face class sessions. Generally, students have the option to participate from a classroom on campus, however many students prefer to join virtual classes weekly, visiting the campus only once or twice each semester for the compulsory face-to-face sessions.

Wherever possible, face-to-face sessions are scheduled consecutively on a single day, so that students can attend all their compulsory sessions during one visit to the University.
