Connect with other online learners
Now you’ve made the decision to learn online, you might be anxious that you’ll be studying all alone. Or you may be worried about lack of opportunities to meet fellow learners.
These are completely natural concerns, especially if you’re a social person.
The good news is, the University of Aberdeen has a virtual support network and a thriving online community in place, so you can always connect with other people.
Ways to connect
Online learning affords many opportunities to connect with others.
- There will normally be discussion boards set up as part of your course.
- There may also be collaborative classroom sessions.
- Social media provides another important space for you to meet and engage with other students.
Our Facebook groups
The University has two specific private Facebook groups for online learners. These are closed groups. They are open only to University of Aberdeen online learners and staff.
