You don't have to come on to campus to attend lectures and seminars, so you won’t have to worry about relocating. You'll have the option to study at home after the kids have gone to bed, in a library, in a coffee shop - or even on the bus. In fact if you can access the internet, you can access everything you need for our distance learning courses. Some of our distance learning courses have additional start dates throughout the year, giving you added options. Any qualification you earn by Distance Learning is of equal value to one obtained studying on campus. You can use other university libraries, so you’ll have the benefit of learning resources close to where you live. Support while you study We put a lot of time and effort into ensuring you have a great experience with us. All Distance Learning students are given an induction programme and course handbook, which specifies exactly what is expected from you - and what you can expect from us.Just because you aren't learning on campus doesn't mean you'll have to cope on your own - you'll have the support of a personal tutor along with the University's Student Hub and Wellbeing Centre. They are on hand to offer you advice about everything from academic issues to stress and anxiety.Tools for learning Our students log in to a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) instead of attending lectures or seminars in person. The VLE gives you access to course materials such as videos, e-books and other documents. You also use it to submit your assignments and to receive feedback.As well as the VLE you'll communicate with us through our online library, online forums, Skype conference calls and email. Some of our courses give you the opportunity to access live lectures, podcasts and blogs - there's even the chance to attend an on-campus learning weekend for certain courses.How to apply You can apply for any of our distance learning courses online, but first you need to register your details.
