A distance learning course from the University of Leicester lets you study at home – from anywhere in the UK or from anywhere in the world - in a way that enables you to fit your learning around your personal and professional life.

Each of our distance learning modules is synchronised with the equivalent campus-based ones, so you will learn the same material as our campus-based students.

Teaching and learning

On a distance learning course, you will study in your own time on a part-time basis, so you can combine achieving a qualification with work or family commitments.
