Distance Learning - Business & Management

If you are 18 or over and want to gain a qualification from the comfort of your home, have a look at our distance learning courses! 

Our distance learning courses start on a weekly basis and will enhance the knowledge of anyone working in a range of industries, improving their practice and also counting towards their Continuing Professional Development (CPD). These courses require a good level of English, are delivered online and take 6-18 weeks to complete. To succeed on a distance learning course, you must be motivated to meet deadlines and produce detailed quality work without supervision. For the vast majority of learners these courses will be fully funded; the enrolments team will contact you after you have enrolled to confirm your eligibility. 

There is a £125 cancellation fee if a learner enrols and fails to complete or withdraws early from the course (this is to cover administration costs). We may be able to offer extensions if learners are unable to meet the set submission deadlines. 

To make an enquiry, head to the individual course and click 'make an enquiry'. You will be contacted within the week by the Distance Learning Coordinator and have an informal assessment and interview prior to acceptance onto the course.

Please note, you can only enrol for one distance learning course at a time.

We also offer courses in Computing and [re]boot Distance Learning courses.
