Distance Learning Courses at UK Universities

Juggle a busy home life or job by choosing a distance learning course

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 offer this unique type of course, allowing 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.

Why study a Distance Learning or online course?

  • Set your timetable of study
  • Save time by not having to leave your home
  • Where you live in the world does not matter
  • Distance learning can cost less than a full-time degree

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.
