A blend of digital and on-campus education

A new world needs a new way to study. Ignite combines face to face, on-campus study with flexible digital learning. Ignite is a blended approach to providing the education you deserve without compromising your safety. So you can fully enjoy your university experience, both physically and virtually, and switch easily between the two as and when you need to.

With Ignite, you will have the flexibility to switch easily between a real-world university experience and a virtual one, as and when you need to. So, you will always have access to our world-leading academics, our Covid-safe campus, your circle of friends and still be a part of our inclusive campus community.

How it works:

  • Small group learning sessions, such as tutorials and seminars, will run face to face and be Livecast online.
  • Larger lectures will be delivered by Livecast and recorded, so you can login when you want and watch from the comfort of your room in halls or from home.
  • Academic and personal support will be available to you either virtually or face to face to respond to your needs. This will include weekly check-ins on your progress and wellbeing

Nishan Canagarajah said: “Ignite offers a new flexible approach to study that means students can switch between a real-world university experience and an online one, as and when they need to.

“In a continually changing world, this dual-delivery approach means we can continue to deliver the education our students deserve. I am grateful to Professor Graham Wynn, our Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Education), and colleagues across the University, for making this possible.”

Ignite will be launched to students on Tuesday 2 June with the model being used to deliver our courses through the challenges of 2020/21 and into the new higher education landscape beyond.
