Ÿ where and when you can study
Ÿ planning your studies
Ÿ exams, assessments and placements
Ÿ the resources and support available.
If you can’t find what you’re looking for, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
What are modules, credits and qualifications?
A module is the basic building block of UCSS study. Modules usually take
9 months to complete. When you successfully complete a module, you’ll earn credits.
You can study a module on its own, or you can study multiple modules to
work toward a nationally recognised qualification such as a certificate, diploma or degree.
For more information about modules, qualifications and
credits, see our Planning your studies section.
How are your modules taught?
You’ll be allocated a tutor who will guide you through your
studies. Modules are taught through entirely online study, or a combination of online and printed materials. Depending on the module, you may also be able to attend optional face-to-face tutorials.
Some tutorials are also delivered online, so you’ll be able to dial in anywhere you can get an internet connection.
Do I get a tutor to help me?
For each module, you’ll be assigned a tutor. They’ll help you with your studies, mark your assignments and give you an extra helping hand when you need it. Most of your contact with
them will be through email, phone and the module forums.
How do the online tutorials work?
You’ll connect through your module website. The tutor
will present to you and other students in an online tutorial room. If you’ve got a headset with a microphone, you’ll be able to join in the conversation. But, even if you don’t, you can still use the chat
box to add your ideas.
Some online tutorials may be recorded, so if you miss one, or you want to go through the information again, they’ll be uploaded after the event is
finished. If you want to know if a tutorial was recorded, be sure to ask your tutor.
Will I attend lectures? Is any of it face-to-face?
As we’re a distance
learning university, you won’t need to attend traditional lectures. Most of your study will take place through your module website and course materials. Some modules may offer you the opportunity
to participate in face-to-face tutorials, while others may offer field trips or require you to attend a residential school. Our module descriptions will tell you more.
How do I access my course materials?
Your course materials will be unique to the modules you study – these could be purely online, or a balance of online and print
materials. Any online materials will be accessible through your module website and, if your module has printed materials, you’ll usually be able to download electronic copies.
If you need your module materials in an accessible or alternative format, be sure to let us know in plenty of time before your module starts.
What is the Virtual Learning
The Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), or module website, as you’ll hear it called, will be where you find everything you need for your module.
There’s a wealth of information on your module website, but the main things to know about now are:
Ÿ You’ll have a week-by-week study planner that’ll guide your learning
throughout the module.
Ÿ There’s an assessment section, showing exactly what you need to do for each assignment and when they’re due.
Ÿ It’s where you’ll book to attend tutorials, join online tutorials and access the contact details for your tutor.
Ÿ You can join all the
other students in your module cohort on the module forums to discuss key topics, do any collaborative work, and get a little extra help if you’re stuck.
Ÿ And it’s also where
you can find all the online, PDF and accessible formats of your module materials and resources.
Where and when you can
Are UCSS courses available in my country?
While our main campus is in LODZ in the POLAND, you can study with us
anywhere in the world.
Some courses may not be available in your country. These would include, but are not limited to, vocational courses for EU students only
(social work and nursing).
Can I study from home?
You can study from home, work, on your commute, or wherever suits you.
All you’ll need is an internet-connected computer and some time to concentrate on your studies.
Some of our modules include exams or a residential school, which you’ll need to
attend. However, if your circumstances mean you aren’t able to come to these, we may be able to offer you an alternative.
Can I study if I’m travelling abroad?
Yes – as long as you’ve got access to an internet connection. Some modules have residential schools or exams that you’ll need to be present for, but you can do your everyday studies
from anywhere in the world.
When can I start my studies?
Once you’ve registered on your qualification, you’ll choose your first
module. Your module will most likely start in October, but some do have February and April start dates as well.
Be sure to enrol on your module before the cut-off date to
secure your place. If you’re not sure when this is, contact us.
Planning your studies
How are your qualifications structured?
You’ll need to build up a set number of credits to complete your qualification. Here’s how it works:
Each qualification is made up of 1, 2 or 3 stages.
Each stage is made up of 120 credits of modules.
Each module is worth 30 or 60 credits.
Ÿ A Certificate of Higher Education is
one stage (120 credits)
Ÿ A Diploma of Higher Education/Foundation Degree is two stages (240 credits)
Ÿ An Honours Degree
is three stages (360 credits)
You’ll study your qualification on a module-by-module basis, so you sign up for only what you’re going to study that year. If you have
other commitments (such as work, family, etc.) we recommend you sign up for 30 or 60 credits. The maximum credits you can study in one year is 120, which is equivalent to full-time study at a campus-
Qualifications have compulsory or optional modules, or a mix of the two. You can see the modules you’ll study by looking at your qualification
Can I transfer my previous study?
Yes, whether you’ve studied some modules or courses at higher education level, completed part
of a degree, diploma or certificate, you may be able to use it towards an Open University qualification.
We call this credit transfer, and it allows you to reach your
qualification goals sooner, saving you time and money.
Find out more about credit transfer and check your eligibility.
Can I change how many modules I
study each year?
Yes – you can vary the number of modules you study each year, but we recommend that you study no more than two modules at the same time (up to a
maximum of 120 credits a year). Just make sure, if you want to study more than one module, you register on all of them before the cut-off date.
When do I find out
about key dates and module timelines?
About two weeks before your module is due to start, you’ll have access to your module website. On there, you’ll have a week-by-week study
plan and assignment deadlines, so you can start to plan your studies. If your module includes a residential school or exam, you may have to wait a little longer to find out these dates. But, don’t
worry, we’ll let you know in plenty of time.
Can I take study breaks?
Yes – whether you need some time out due to work, family
commitments, ill health, or anything else that’s going on in your life – you can request a Study Break. You’ll still be an UCSS student, and you’ll get communication from us that’ll be relevant
to your studies.
Exams, assessment and placements
How will I be assessed? Will I have
to sit exams?

assignments, but you may be offered the opportunity to resit your exam or submit another end-of-module assessment.
Do I need to be in work or employed in a specific area?

social work, and you’ll have to arrange these yourself. For more information, check out the description for the specific qualification and modules you’re interested in.
