WHAT IS DISTANCE LEARNING?
Distance learning allows you to do just that – study at a distance, wherever you want, whenever you want – you don’t have to be based local to us or travel to any of our campuses, you simply plug in and progress with your chosen course with support from our Distance Learning team. Study in the comfort of your own home and flexibly around your existing commitments, at a pace that suits you.
