Choose when and where to study.

Distance learning is perfect if you want to choose when and where to study. It's an ideal solution if you're juggling work, family and childcare commitments or you find it hard to get to campus.

I have left with a newfound confidence, resilience and enthusiasm for distance learning and study in general. The experience has shaped me for future study and given me skills for life, both personally and professionally.
