Online & On Campus:
At Milton Keynes College, we offer a selection of hybrid learning courses, providing a flexible study option that is the perfect combination of online learning alongside regular lessons that commence on campus.
Our range of online and on campus part-time professional courses offers the best of both worlds, requiring less time in college than traditional classroom only courses, while providing all the benefits of being part of a group that meets regularly with a college tutor. Meaning that you can choose how, when, and where you want to study.
Online and on campus: The best of both worlds
Online, you will study award-winning video lessons, which are available on demand, and can be viewed from your phone, tablet or computer – meaning you can choose how, when and where you want to study.
Each lesson lasts for around 45 minutes and is accompanied by animations and motion graphics to bring concepts to life. Practice questions, downloadable lesson materials and interactive case studies help to enhance the learning experience further and learners should expect to spend between 3 and 6 hours studying independently online each week (depending on your level of study).
On Campus study
On campus, you benefit from regular classes with a college tutor – without having to commit to attending multiple evenings each week.
Your tutor will review what you have learnt during your online lessons and will be on hand to provide guidance on progress and assessment.
Regular discussion with classmates will help to reinforce key points while also providing the additional support and motivation that comes from being part of a group.
Hybrid learning: what is it and what are the benefits?
Milton Keynes College is proud to provide some great options for adult learners who are looking to start a new career, with numerous hybrid learning courses that will help to build up adult skill sets, in areas such as accounting and management.

Adult English and Maths
Hybrid classes are held online using Microsoft Teams. Classes take place at the same time each week and require you to be logged in with your tutor, available and responsive, for the full class duration. If you are offered a place on a Hybrid course, you will need your own working laptop or desktop computer with a microphone and camera. You will also need a reliable internet connection at home. A solid standard of digital literacy and established study skills are required before starting Hybrid learning. If Hybrid learning is not a good fit for you, onsite classroom-based classes offer more tutor support. Please contact us if you have any questions about our Hybrid courses in Adult English and Maths.
We can offer a range of funding and loans to help you cover the cost of your study. Select the level you’re looking to apply for and contact us for more information.
Our courses are part-funded, significantly reducing the overall cost.
Accounting courses are fully funded for eligible learners (those without a full Level 3 qualification).
Level 3 & 4
Advanced Leaner Loans are available and you will not have to pay anything back until you’re earning over £26,575 a year.
Note regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19): Due to the nature of our online and on campus courses, with key concepts being taught online through high-quality video lectures, students are able to continue their studies seamlessly with social distancing in place or if the college needs to close. Regular ‘on campus’ lessons are replaced by remote ‘virtual classroom’ sessions led by college tutors. This flexible approach can be easily adapted to suit government guidance and college policies.
