Hybrid learning is a new learning model that enables the simultaneous delivery of our programmes to participants either on campus or live virtually. We’ve carefully designed this approach to create a seamless learning experience, where virtual and face-to-face participants interact and learn together. Virtual participants will also have the opportunity to live the London experience by joining us on campus for an exclusive day of networking with like-minded professionals and with the latest thinking from our world-class faculty.
Hybrid learning allows all participants, whether learning virtually or in-person, to use technology throughout the programme to interact with faculty, engage with course content and learn from their peers. It’s an engaging, interactive and innovative teaching model that offers a shared classroom experience for both participants and faculty.
