Life at TUS

Why choose TUS?

Our university has a long history of offering professional and flexible learning programmes. We provide the knowledge, tools and resources to help you achieve your goals and ambitions.

Future Focussed
With a clear focus on meeting the evolving needs
of our regions and industry, we at TUS continuously
collaborate with stakeholders, partners and industry
employers to ensure that our programmes provide
upskilling and reskilling that is industry relevant.

Build On Your Existing Skillset
Together we identify skill needs, upskilling
requirements and areas of professional
development. Working collectively allows us
to provide tailored upskilling programmes to
suit learners needs, delivered in flexible online
modules that are accessible and compatible
with work commitments resulting in a win-win for both employer and employee.

A Wide Variety of Options
Our programmes are offered across the full spectrum
of range, length and accessibility. Varying from bitesized Micro Credentials and Special Purpose Awards
that are run over a few weeks, micro stackable
modules that learners can access over a number
of years to gain their degree, to programmes that
result in postgraduate awards part-time over a
year. For the majority of our programmes content
is delivered online, recorded lectures are available,
with live classes taking place in the evenings
and occasionally via weekend workshops.

Your Availability Counts
A number of our programmes are fully face to face
and delivery methods are flexible to suit learners
needs, with particular focus on accessibility at
times that suit learners who are in employment.

Be Part of A Community

TUS Flexible Learning accepted over 4,000 students this year.
Many of those students had not formally studied in
years, others were looking for that next career move
and wanted to upskill. While our university is made
up of six diverse and vibrant campuses along with
our Virtual Learning Environment, there is something
for everybody in our community of learners.
