What are the benefits of study by distance learning at Leicester?
Studying by distance learning has the benefit of allowing you to develop your career without having to leave employment. It also means that you can apply new knowledge and insights to your working life while you are still studying, with many students choosing to tackle work-related topics in their dissertations.
You have the flexibility to study in your own time and from home or the office as there are no timetabled classes to attend. This means you can fit studying for a qualification around other commitments.
Self-study is central to distance learning. However, support is always available from tutors at the University. You will have access to the library’s special service for distance learning students, access to the internet and database services, as well as the virtual learning support environment, Blackboard.
