Distance learning online chats

Our live chats give you the perfect opportunity to ask our academics and support staff questions about anything related to distance learning with the University of Leicester. Feel free to ask anything - from application queries to fees and funding questions, to what modules you will study and how you will be assessed.

We are here to support you all the way from your application through to graduation and beyond. These live chats give you the opportunity to discuss your course and raise any questions.
