Distance and online learning

Citizens of Change don’t all study in Leicester. Our online distance learning courses have students in more than a hundred countries, on almost every continent*, studying a wide range of subjects at different levels. Whatever the actual distance involved – other side of the planet or just down the road – distance learning is a great way to boost your career alongside your existing commitments.

Distance Learning can serve as an invaluable opportunity for students with backgrounds of forced displacement to further their education. As a University of Sanctuary, we have committed to offering 100 Distance Learning Sanctuary Awards over the academic years 2023/24 to 2025/26 to aspiring students who have been forcibly displaced from their homes and/or who are at risk of political persecution, violence or conflict anywhere in the world.
