Choose from daytime, evening or weekend timetabled live lectures online, and talk to tutors during the class for live feedback. Additionally, our lectures are recorded for you, so if you miss one you can catch up or re-watch classes for extra revision. We think it’s the safest, most stress-free and motivational way to study.

Who’s it for?

Distance Learning Plus – Live Online suits people who want the benefits of interactive class based learning, enjoy live tutor support and the flexibility and motivation of a tutor-structured approach to their studies, but with the flexibility of joining remotely from wherever you have internet access.

Now is a good time to prepare and improve your skills and qualifications, as organisations and the economy rebound.

What to expect?

Hybrid working, less commuting and the greater use of online technology is meaning that we all might have a little more spare time and motivation to learn.
