Quality, reputation and recognition

Quality, reputation and recognition

  • We’ve worked closely with the MOD for a long time, supporting in-service education and training. More than 1,500 service personnel and their dependents are currently taking advantage of our special relationship.

  • We signed The Corporate Covenant in March 2016, underlining our commitment to the Armed Forces and pledging to continue supporting servicemen and women with access to flexible higher education. We support members of the Armed Forces into Higher Education, recognise the value of military skills and offer a stepping stone to a new career post-service.

  • We’re leading the most recent and exciting development in distance education: Massive Open Online Courses (MOOC). Our expertise powers FutureLearn, the UK’s largest MOOC provider.
