As beneficial as studying in a classroom can be, it doesn’t offer the same freedom or flexibility that distance learning offers.
Distance learning is becoming increasingly popular amongst many people as it allows easier work/life balance. It lets you fit your learning around your work and home life. It’s especially useful if you’ve got family commitments, or you’re budget-conscious. It’s also beneficial to those who wish to change career but need to gain relevant skills and qualifications in order to do so whilst continuing to work.
You might consider distance learning if you wish to gain the necessary skills to change your career, enhance future career prospects, or even if you want to just gain a more in-depth understanding of a subject or particular area of interest.
One of the biggest advantages of distance learning…
Is that you can it allows you to continue working while to study, enabling you to earn while you learn. Studying when you want, where you want.
There’s no tight, rigid structure of a timetable, you are free to study at your own pace. This means you don’t have to endure the stress of tight and strict deadlines and you can take your time to finish the course. Not all students learn and process information at the same pace, but with distance learning, there’s no need to worry about falling behind or powering ahead and having to wait for others to catch up.
Learning is an individual process
Learning in a classroom environment can be challenging. Many of us have a preferred style of learning and a distance learning course give you the chance to discover it.
Tactile learners work best when they are presented with practical and active tasks, visual learners process visual information such as images and diagrams, while auditory learners thrive on hearing information and processing this.
Regardless of where you are in the world, you can still gain a qualification with distance learning. It’s particularly useful if the course you want to do isn’t offered in your local area. You’ll still receive the same level of dedicated support whether you’re in the UK, Europe, or even further afield.
