How Foreign Students Can Benefit From UK Distance Learning


Distance learning is an excellent way for international students to enhance their skills, get a qualification and improve their chances of entry into a host of exciting industries in their home country.

In this article, we’re going to take a look at some of the benefits that anyone can expect from engaging in a distance learning course, no matter where in the world they are situated.


Consider The Costs

Attending a UK educational institution in person can be expensive. Not only do you have to stump up the cash for flights and transfers, but you also have to pay for accommodation which, in some cities, isn’t cheap. Distance learning helps you avoid the majority of costs associated with living near a university campus. You won’t have to pay rent to a student landlord, and by living at home, you’ll save on other costs of living.

Distance learning still requires you to pay educational fees, but the overall costs are much less.


Get Tutor Support

Many international students worry that they won’t be able to access tutor support because of timezone differences. UK Distance Learning ensures that tutors can answer all queries and mark assignments by logging all student correspondence in the web portal.


Get Relevant Training In Growing Industries

Distance learning gives you a choice of industry-relevant and specific courses that will help you get the skills you need to earn a living. You can learn all kinds of things, from anatomy and physiology to property development. Distance learning gives you the opportunity to learn critical vocational skills that will benefit you for a lifetime.


Continue Working

Not everyone wants to give up paid work to go into education. With UK Distance Learning you don’t have to. You can organise your studies around your timetable, giving you time to study and work at the same time. Our courses are designed to fit comfortably into your life, allowing you to get the skills you need without sacrificing your financial security.


No Need To Travel To The UK

Here at UK Distance Learning, we offer a range of courses that are assessed by assignment only. This means that you do not need to travel to the UK to sit an exam. You can write your assessment at home and then submit it online, saving on expenses.

We can also send you an electronic copy of your certificate to avoid postage problems and delays.


Cut Communication Costs

At UK Distance Learning, we do all of our communication over the internet. There’s no need to spend money on expensive international phone calls to tutors: a simple email will suffice. All assignment information is communicated via the internet too, so there’s no need to rely on international postal services.
