Distance study

Our distance study programmes offer you flexibility and access to our industry-leading qualifications no matter where you are located. Distance study can seem daunting if you feel you will be working in isolation. Recognising this, we’ve put in place supports to help you.

  • Distance study participants are supported by our  Moodle Learning Management System (LMS): a dynamic online tool that supports flexible learning;
  • Enjoy 24 hour a day access to our pre-recorded video lectures* which guide you through your programme step by step;
  • Each lecture is accompanied on Moodle by downloadable slides and back up materials, meaning you can study at your own pace;
  • Moodle is also where you will download and submit your assignments, and where you can communicate with your fellow participants on dedicated online forums and facilitating powerful peer to peer learning and moral support;
  • You will have programme and assessment coordinators for support and to enable contact with your tutor should you need it.

Distance participants can start the programme at any time and can choose when they wish to receive their assessment from the list of dates below. We recommend starting the programme at least six weeks before your chosen assignment release date to allow you adequate time to cover content before starting the assignment.

*Recorded lectures are deemed as a supplementary learning resource and not a primary resource in order to complete a programme. All efforts are made to upload recorded material to Moodle, where this is not possible due to technical errors or where there are time delays incurred, this is not deemed as prohibitive to completing an assessment.
