Distance learning courses allow students to study for qualifications online from the comfort of their own homes without having to deal with applying for a study visa or a more costly life in the UK. An increasing number of UK universities are offering this unique type of course, which allows students to combine work or family alongside study.
All course materials are provided via an online portal, while many universities offer the option to receive them via post. Seminars will take place online, while one-to-one meetings with your assigned tutor mean you will receive direct guidance and support. Face-to-face encounters are also available if you are close enough to attend.
The most significant advantage of distance learning is that study is built around your employment and home life. Universities take distance learning just as seriously as those who study on campus, meaning the undergraduate or postgraduate degree you study is worth just as much.
Almost all UK universities offer online study, including leading global institutions such as University College London. Learn more about the best universities in the UK and enquire about their distance learning courses today.
All your course materials, lectures, and supplementary information will be provided via a Virtual Learning Environment on a distance learning course.
There are two types of online tutorials, recorded and interactive tutorials. The teacher demonstrates the information and ideas in recorded tutorials in videos or screencast recordings. Interactive tutorials are structured collections of navigable web pages containing a combination of audio, images, texts, videos, and self-test questions.
Distance learning degrees are delivered strictly online through recorded videos or interactive tutorials.
Distance learning courses at UK universities are usually delivered in a Virtual Learning Environment from where students download course materials.
A virtual learning environment is a web-based platform for presenting resources and activities, such as delivering lectures and conducting assessments, within a course structure.

My consultant was very helpful and motivating. She helped me every step of the way, even when the deadline was so close. I feel I could not have done it without her. I'd highly recommend this service to any and all of my many friends interested.
