Archaeology and Ancient History

Distance learning

We offer an exceptional range of flexible and accessible career and life changing learning opportunities. We have been teaching students by distance learning for more than 20 years, providing internationally-recognised academic qualifications including certificates, diplomas, undergraduate and postgraduate degrees and PhDs. This means that you don't need to leave your job to study or relocate. You can study from anywhere in the world, and at a pace that will fit in with your other commitments. It is possible to switch between distance learning and campus-based study. Our programmes can help you to change careers, enhance your existing career, or help you to pursue your passion for the past whatever your age and experience.

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 all our teaching is informed by our own original research. Fees are considerably less than for our campus programmes.
