We offer distance learning courses in many subjects to allow you to study and gain a qualification from the comfort of your own home.

  • Gain independence and confidence - Self-study can help increase your independence, self-motivation, and intuitive skills, as well as your knowledge of the subject. Most courses also include a qualification to reflect your hard work.
