We offer a range of distance learning courses and specialise in Access to Higher Education Diplomas for people wishing to enter university. Access courses are designed for UK residents who want to enter Higher Education but do not have the necessary qualifications.
All DLC tutors are fully qualified professional teachers or trainers, with the DLC maintaining a consistent record for quality with excellent Moderation Reports from the Awarding Body (Open College North West Region, trading as Open Awards) and recently being held up as an example of Best Practice at the QAA (Quality Assurance Agency) conference celebrating 20 years of Access to Higher Education.
The DLC has provided Access Diplomas entirely by distance learning for over 20 years which means that, if students can access a computer and, if possible, a telephone, they can study from anywhere in the world (although a UK residence address must be proved to study an accredited Access Diploma).
One of the main reasons that the DLC is so successful is due to its uniquely individual, friendly and supportive service. Tutors contact students weekly by telephone and respond to emails within 24-48 hours (although 90% of the time in less than 24 hours). This means that a relationship is built up between student and tutor, which encourages them to succeed and includes pastoral support and an awareness and accommodation of individual commitments and circumstances. Learning Materials and Assessments are of high quality and provided in easily accessible formats which can be viewed online or printed.
