What are AAT Distance Learning Plus – Live Online courses?

Distance Learning Plus –  Live Online offer the advantages and structure usually found only in the classroom courses, but with the independence of studying from home – avoiding the time and cost of commuting to your college campus.

Choose from daytime, evening or weekend timetabled live lectures online, and talk to tutors during the class for live feedback.
