Indeed, it’s astounding to think how far distance learning has come ...
In the early days, hopping impatiently from foot to foot while waiting for the postman to arrive so you could find out the title of your next essay was commonplace.
This was then followed by hours spent tracking down the last copy of an “essential reading” book in the local library.
Additionally, in those pre-digital days, completing a distance learning degree often meant working alone on an assignment for days or even weeks, with limited guidance or feedback from your course tutor and only occasional interaction with fellow students.
How things have changed …
As a distance learning student, the internet has undoubtedly revolutionised the way in which you go about the business of studying for degrees and qualifications. While you’ll still work remotely, the facility to work online has hugely increased the benefits of distance learning.
Rapid communications allow real time access to tutors and online degree course materials, with the proliferation of blogs, wikis and other social media making the whole process interactive. This also makes your course far more interesting and engaging, wherever in the world you may be based.
Sophisticated modern technology has led to a rapid proliferation in the educational opportunities available to distance learning students worldwide, some located in even extremely remote areas. Indeed, we currently have distance learning students pursuing online degree programmes just about anywhere in the world where there is a reliable internet connection!
So, whether you're an eager economist in Ealing, an aspiring advertising executive in Algiers, a diligent management trainee in Delhi, or a full-time mom in Michigan planning a return to work, YOU can be part of the distance learning experience.
Regardless of your area of interest, we’re sure to have an online course to suit.
