Distance learning courses allow students to study for qualifications online from the comfort of their own home without having to deal with visa requirements or a more costly life in the UK. An increasing number of UK universities are offering this unique type of course which allows students to combine work or family alongside study.
The biggest advantage of Distance learning is that study is built around your employment and home life. Universities take distance learning just as seriously as those who study on campus, meaning the undergraduate or postgraduate degree you study is worth just as much.
All course materials are provided via an online portal, while many universities also offer the option to receive them via the post. Seminars will take place online, while one-to-one meetings with your assigned tutor mean you will receive direct guidance and support. Face-to-face encounters are also available if you are close enough to attend.
If you are interested in learning more about Distance Learning at a UK university, arrange a free consultation in our offices in Kampala or via Skype.
My counsellor contacted me every day throughout the application process and helped me receive an unconditional offer. I am so grateful to SI-UK and will never forget them. I will study very hard as I feel this is the best reward I can give the whole team.
