What is distance learning?

Distance learning and our online courses allow 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 around the world via your Virtual Learning Environment (VLE).

What are the advantages of distance learning?
  • Study anywhere – our programmes can be fully studied online so you can learn from wherever you are.
  • Learn at your own pace – you’ll have the flexibility to fit your studies around your schedule and work commitments on a part-time or full-time basis.
  • Value for money – fees for distance learning programmes are generally lower than on-campus programmes. You will also save on the cost of relocating to London to complete your degree.
How are learners supported?

When you register, we will give you access to the Student Portal. You can then access your Southern Vermont College email account and other key resources including: the Virtual Learning Environment, the Student Guide and the Online Library.

We also offer our students a wealth of careers resources and guidance. To find out more about the career support available to our students, please visit our global employability page.

Is distance learning and online study right for you?

Most of our programmes are designed to be studied online, independently. Our students benefit from the flexibility to choose where and when they study at a pace that fits their lifestyle.
