Warnborough College will allocate the most suitable mentor for your research. Mentors are drawn from leading universities in the the United Kingdom and around the world. They are highly qualified, well-respected and experienced experts in their chosen fields who enjoy working with fellow researchers. The mentor and the student will decide how they will communicate: on-line, by mail, fax or telephone or meeting face-to-face. Students may request a specific mentor for their research.

Each new student will be allocated a peer buddy. A peer buddy is a current or past Warnborough student who can provide peer support to the new student. Peer buddies know what it is like to persevere on a distance learning programme, and how to overcome any pitfalls. Keeping motivation high on distance learning can be a difficult and lonely process. The buddy system hopes to alleviate some of this frustration so that new students have someone to turn to.
Students may utilise their own local learning resources such as university library facilities, public libraries, museums, art galleries and special collections for research purposes. The Internet increasingly offers a wealth of reliable and current information which can be exploited for the purposes of research. Online forums, chat-rooms and audio/video conferencing can now facilitate global research discussions cheaply, quickly and effectively. Students have access to an online library of thousands of journals and magazines, plus course materials through the Warnborough Learning Management System (LMS) and other services such as course notes, assignments and forums for students.
Assessment and/or examination is built into all programmes, from Bachelor up to Doctoral levels. All thesis and dissertation submissions are examined by a panel of reviewers with at least one independent examiner. The panel recommends a decision on the awarding of the appropriate degree. A thesis or dissertation submission can be passed, or failed. In some cases a re-submission may be required, a lesser degree awarded or an oral examination. The College has a policy on intellectual property rights, and encourages successful students to disseminate and publish the outcomes of their research.
