So, what exactly is remote study? Remote study is when ALL teaching and learning is delivered online, and you won’t be going on campus.
Remote study is for students who are significantly impacted by the pandemic, and it is not possible for them to return to campus (e.g. travel restrictions or health concerns).
If you have chosen to study remotely, here are some key services and support on offer to you:
Learning and teaching material is mostly delivered through Moodle and KentPlayer. Read our online teaching and learning guide for information on:
- the tech you need and support available if you need a laptop or other tech
- getting started on Moodle and Kent Player
- assessment advice
- our online library resources
- accessibility and productivity tools
And make sure you check out the Online Learning at Kent Moodle Module so that you’re fully prepared for online learning at Kent. Your academic school will give you programme and module-specific information.
