    The experience

    Overview

    Studying with MBS: Whether from home or later on campus, we’ve got you covered

    Until it is safe to return to campus, our students are learning at home through our virtual campus and using platforms like our learning management system Canvas and Zoom for lectures and tutorials with breakout rooms to encourage interaction and discussion.

    Our Virtual Campus Community, including all of our University Services for students, is fully up and running. We are providing many ways to stay positive and connected online including workouts with MU Sport, course planning appointments, ways to enhance your academic skills and appointments for counselling and wellbeing.

    Top-Tier Research & High-Quality Teaching

    At MBS we offer a comprehensive program to support your learning, develop your skills and enrich your degree. We encourage you to be involved both on and off campus and to make the most of your time outside the classroom.
