Benefits of distance learning
The main advantage of distance learning is the convenience it offers. You can learn at your own pace and at a time that suits you.
If you have employment, family or other commitments, distance learning gives you the flexibility to schedule your study pattern around these obligations, providing a world-class education tailored to your lifestyle.
You don’t need to attend lectures on campus, so there are no accommodation or transport costs, and you don‘t require a student visa.
Our online courses deliver internationally recognised qualifications, from postgraduate certificates and diplomas to master’s in law, science and art. When you enrol as a distance learning student at Manchester you join the Manchester alumni in the same way as our on-campus students.
