Distance Learning at UK Universities
What is Distance Learning?
Distance learning courses allow students to study for qualifications online from the comfort of their own home without having to deal with visa requirements 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.
The impact of coronavirus means distance learning is becoming the new normal at universities across the UK. Learn more about how COVID-19 is impacting on study in the UK for Autumn 2020.
Why study a Distance Learning or online course?
- Set your own 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 biggest 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.
How does Distance Learning work?
All course materials are provided via an online portal, while many universities also offer the option to receive them via the 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.
