Distance Learning FAQs

There is no campus, no fixed timetable and our online study portal, ilearn is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week! The qualification at the end is the same as any other UK university course. We provide you with all the study materials you need, a team of expert tutors and other support to get you through. 

You will need to be online for all of our courses, and there are specific software requirements for some of them. You can connect to ilearn through many different devices such as mobile phones, tablets and laptops, or your local library may have resources you can use.

Your learning materials are developed by subject specialists and have been developed with your future career in mind – so you don't just get the theory to help you pass your exams, but also real-life, practical examples to make things easier to understand and to help you later thrive in the workplace.
