Welcome to RYI’s Online Learning courses! Please note that these courses differ from the Distance Learning courses that we are currently offering online while the campus has closed due to the pandemic. The Distance Learning courses consist of live classes in order to accommodate RYI students who can no longer attend campus, and are offered to anyone else who would like to participate in those courses. The Online Learning courses differ to the Distance Learning version in that the classes are pre-recorded which means the student can decide on their own schedule. The Online Learning courses offer varying levels of interaction, the formats you can choose from are Self-Study, Interactive and For-credit. For more about the formats please click here for the FAQs.
Online Learning courses are now open for enrollment. Browse our course selections below and get started!
The fees for the online learning courses will increase on October 23. If you want to avail of the lower prices please sign up before then!
