Distance learning

We are world leaders in archaeology and ancient history programmes by distance learning. We have been teaching students by distance learning for 20 years, and offer a full range of internationally-recognised academic qualifications - from undergraduate degrees through to Masters and PhDs. This means that you don't need to leave your job to study or give up your life to relocate to a university. You can study from anywhere in the world, and at a pace that will fit in with your other commitments.

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.
