Blended and digital learning with Kaplan

Our colleges are ready to welcome you in person for a blended learning experience that will help to ensure your safety and wellbeing through measures such as lower density classrooms and some online study.

Blended learning maths

Digital learning is part of how we and our UK university partners are currently teaching. It forms part of our blended learning delivery for students who can travel to their study destination, and it’s how we provide remote learning for students who need to start their studies from their home country. It enables us to keep teaching during national lockdowns or when there are travel restrictions.

So don’t worry if you can’t travel yet. Our flexible learning solutions are available if you need to start your studies online, and you can join your course in person when it’s possible to do so.

Students applying to US universities

We will work closely with you to address any issues you may have with travel, visas, and admission tests, and we’ll take you through all your options to make sure your study plans are right for you.

Our US university partners have safe and flexible on-campus study options,  so you can study with confidence.



  • Receive a high level of support

    Kaplan and university admission teams will stay in close contact with you during the application and admission process to help create the study plan that will best enable you to fulfill your US education dream!

    We partner with US universities who design innovative solutions for challenges in all areas of life, so you can rest assured that they have flexible admission criteria, deferral policies and teaching delivery methods in place.

  • Feel safe with a coronavirus vaccine

    When you come to study in the USA, you’ll have the opportunity to receive a vaccine. The country began its vaccine rollout in January, and a majority of the population has now received two doses of one of the three currently approved vaccines. This is helping to prevent people from getting seriously ill, and enabling US society and the economy to open back up.

    Vaccines are widely available in the US, and as an international student at a US university, you’ll be eligible to get vaccinated, free of charge. Some universities are even administering vaccines on campus. Find out more on our US FAQs page.

Applied through Kaplan to Arizona State University and following his path to a master's in Engineering

With Kaplan, nothing is impossible. They stayed in touch with me for the whole journey, from submitting a complete application to enrolling at the university. They helped me a lot along the way and they are still helping me to this day.


Students applying to UK universities

We’re committed to helping students around the world continue to gain access to the fantastic education the UK has to offer. Our flexible intakes and application policy, as well as flexible study options, are all in place to help you plan your future.

A blended learning approach is currently in place at our UK colleges, ensuring you’ll be joining a study environment that’s a safe of possible. If you cannot come to the UK, don’t worry: we’re also offering digital learning. Whenever you’re ready to start your course, we’ll have a study option for you.

  • 1. Start your pathway course in the UK with blended learning

    You’ll  be able to start or join your UK pathways programme with in-person teaching in the UK, if you’re able to travel. This will be through blended learning, which offers a mixture of online and face-to-face teaching in small groups. This is all designed to make sure our colleges and partner university study centres are as safe environments as possible.

    If national lockdown restrictions are in place, or you can’t travel, you can start your course online instead.

  • 2. Start your pathway course online from your home country

    You can start your pathway course digitally from your home country, with our comprehensive digital learning solutions. You can then join us in person once it’s possible, and your situation allows for it. This option is especially useful if national lockdown restrictions are in place, or you’re unable to travel to the UK.

    If you can’t make it to the UK, don’t worry. In most cases, it’s possible to finish your entire pathway course online if that better suits your situation (subject to continued approval by UK Visas and Immigration).

  • Book accommodation when you're ready

    Whether you’re starting your pathway course here in the UK, or from your home country, when the time comes for you to find accommodation we’ll help you find the perfect home away from home.

    It’s important that you only book accommodation when you know what your plans are, and know you’re able to travel to the UK. Remember, we’ll be supporting and advising you at every step, and we’ll make sure you find accommodation that suits your needs.

    From May to August 2021 we are offering a new, flexible way to book your accommodation, so you can join us in the UK to finish your programme in person. If you are planning to come from September 2021, we have fantastic accommodation options available to book too.
