Distance Learning in Archaeology and Ancient History

Take a look at Archaeology and Ancient History by Distance Learning at Leicester!

We are the world leaders in archaeology and ancient history programmes by distance learning.  This is not just a marketing boast – we have been teaching students by distance learning for nearly 20 years, and now offer undergraduate degrees, MAs, and PhDs.  This means that you don’t need to leave your job to study, or give up your life to relocate to a university.  You can study anywhere in the world (as long as you have access to a computer and the internet) at a pace that will fit in with all your other commitments.  All of our courses are of exactly the same academic quality and standard as our campus programmes, and you will graduate with a University of Leicester qualification.  Our distance programmes are written and taught by academic staff with specialisms in the subject area, and of course all our teaching is informed by our own original research.
