Learning Online with Distance Learning CentreOnline learning allows students to participate in online courses through the Internet. You don’t need to attend physical classes, and you can choose to learn from work or the comfort of your own home. Online learning is also a way for industry experts to pass on their knowledge in a modern environment.

Flexible Study

Location independence is a great benefit of online study. You can study from the comfort of your own home whenever you please with no dress code to worry about and no fixed hours! Study wherever and whenever you want: the only requirement is a PC, laptop, or tablet connected to the Internet. In addition, because you don't have to attend class at a specific time, you can carry out your job and study during your free time. You can also review your course materials as often as you want.

Self-paced Learning

Some people absorb new information quickly, while others need repetition to fully take on board new knowledge. With online study, there is greatly reduced pressure because you can study at your own pace and you can take a break whenever you need it. It’s also easier to focus with no classmates to distract you.

Lower costs

With online learning, there are none of the traditional costs associated with classroom study. There are no classroom overheads for the course provider, enabling them to charge less for your training, and no travel costs for the student.

Better tutor support

You can email your questions directly to your tutor, who can take as much time as required to give you a thorough answer.

A wide range of courses to choose from

There are online courses available for virtually any subject you can think of from aromatherapy, through gardening and psychology, to web design.


Because you don’t have to attend physical classes, you'll be forced to learn self-discipline by managing your time and tasks.

Accessible to all

Despite the passing of legislation to make buildings more accessible, there are still many colleges and other learning establishments where wheelchair access is not provided, preventing wheelchair-users from attending, whereas online courses are accessible to everyone.
