Why Choose Distance Learning?

- see the benefits that distance learning can have on your life

Distance learning is a way of learning remotely without being in regular face-to-face contact with a teacher in the classroom. This can include courses that are 100% completed remotely, such as via the internet or post, and those that have some face-to-face sessions with tutors & other students.

Studying by distance learning has the benefit of allowing you to develop your career without having to leave employment. It can also give you an opportunity to study whilst you are a carer or parent of a child, or if you have a disability or health need which means that you find it difficult to leave your home.

It also means that you can apply new knowledge and insights to your working life while you are still studying, with many students choosing to tackle work-related topics in their dissertations.

Distance learning isn't just about career progression. It can also be to deepen your knowledge of a favourite subject or simply for the pure enjoyment of learning.

One of the other benefits of distance learning is that you are not tied to courses that are being run in the borough or the surrounding areas. You can access courses from a range of providers from the UK and international. There are also a range of providers, including specialist organisations, existing universities & colleges, and training providers.
