We deliver ECDL using a blended learning approach. You can learn online from home, in the Library, in your Hall, or anywhere else with an Internet connection at your own pace. You can also visit our regular ECDL drop-in sessions on the Headington campus, where you can undertake practice tests and get detailed feedback from your tutor, prior to your ECDL exams.
Check the ECDL Student Guide to find out about the course structure and how to access the training.
Read the ECDL Syllabus to get an idea of course content.
Check your availability. Drop-ins take place every Wednesday morning, and most Monday afternoons at the ECDL Centre.
Exams can be taken on Wednesday mornings between 10.30-12.30. View the Dates & times.
The ECDL Centre is located in the IT Training, room LL.G.03. Lloyd Building (ground floor). Download the Headington campus map for details.
Once you have enrolled, ECDL is non-refundable as software licences will have been purchased for you. However if you inform us in writing within 14 days of registration, and providing you have accessed no online study units, we will refund your fees, subject to a £95 administration fee.
We expect you to complete ECDL within one year from the date of enrolment. If you need more time, we charge a £65 annual continuation fee. Your fees include practice tests and examinations for all unit, plus one spare. Additional practice tests and examinations are £25.
On successful completion of all tests, you will be awarded your ECDL certificate, certified by the BCS The Chartered Institute for IT.
