Distance Learning Centre - Self-study, online and distance learning courses

The Distance Learning Centre is one of the leading and longest established suppliers of distance learning courses, open learning, home study, and correspondence courses in the UK. Providing distance learning courses since 1994, the Distance Learning Centre has grown to be one of the UK’s leading distance learning providers.

The Distance Learning Centre offers a wide variety of subjects which you can study at your own pace from home or work. Each year, thousands of students sign up for our distance learning courses and gain relevant nationally-recognised qualifications to assist their career and improve their employability.

How do the distance courses work?

It's all really very simple. The Distance Learning Centre supplies you with appropriate study materials to head for a particular qualification or exams. You receive your course materials in one go so you know exactly what you are getting for your money. You then receive support through a personal tutor to help you get through the course materials.

What are the advantages of Distance Learning?

Distance Learning Centre - distance learning coursesThere are many advantages to Distance Learning, but the main advantages have to be cost and flexibility. When studying via Distance Learning, there is no need to attend a classroom, so there is no waste of time or other resources spent commuting to specific location for each class. Distance learning is also a great advantage for those with restricted mobility.

Distance Learning allows you to study at own pace, as quickly or slowly as you please, and of course the costs are also a lot less!

Distance Learning allows smaller fees for you because we do not have the large overheads that some over companies have. We do not spend thousands of pounds on expensive television and radio campaigns and do not employ a large sales team.Why are your course fees smaller than other companies?

Are the courses tutor supported?

You can get help from your dedicated tutor 7 days a week by email, or post. Some courses also come with telephone support.

I enjoyed the course very much it was extremely informative and I feel I learnt a lot as I went through the course materials. The structure of the course was well laid out and seemed to suit my style of learning. The follow by example was a good way of learning for me.
