Distance learning

Our flexible approach offers you a range of study options.

  • You can study by online and flexible learning, which allows you to combine your studies with work or other commitments.
  • For many of our undergraduate courses, you may be able to study full-time with local teaching support.

In this section

We set the syllabus, provide study materials and assess your work. Local teaching institutions can support you through the course.

Study independently or with a local institution

Most of our courses are designed to be studied independently. However, if you prefer structured study support, you can attend classes for many of our undergraduate courses at a local teaching institution.

Study at a local teaching institution.

What is distance learning?

Distance learning allows you to study wherever you are, arranging your studies around your work or family life. You learn using study materials and online learning resources that are designed for active learning. You can also connect with other students on your course around the world via your virtual learning environment.

International Programmes

You told us our name, the University of London International Programmes, was confusing! So we’ve taken your feedback on board, and we’re dropping ‘International Programmes’ from our name.

This means that the name ‘University of London’ will be carried on all our distance and flexible learning activity, to better reflect the internationally renowned University of London award, which will remain the same.
