UK Distance Learning and Publishing offers you the chance to gain valuable qualifications and experience from the comfort of your own home.

Home study is becoming more and more popular as an alternative to classroom based learning, as it allows those with busy working schedules to learn whenever and wherever they wish. Almost all of our courses are assignment-based, so no exams need to be taken for your distance learning experience. Some courses, such as IGCSEs and A-Levels, do involve examinations, but since we do not have set term dates, you can enrol for a distance learning course at any time, and study in your own time.

As one of the UK's premier home study distance learning companies we have very experienced staff and tutors on hand to help guide you throughout your course. We offer as much flexibility as possible, with both online and paper-based materials, and are always happy to make adjustments whereever we can to improve our students' experience.

With our flexible distance learning courses, we can offer courses to anyone in the world such as international students wishing to achieve a UK recognised qualification. All you will need to undertake a distance learning course is a valid email address to keep in touch with us.

Student story

Course Studied: English Language & Literature

I began my studies for A-Level English Language and Literature in January 2013 and this is my second course with the provider.

I have enjoyed the learning experience and found the course to be a necessity for personal development within my occupation; while also encouraging my own enthusiasm for learning.

The course comes in two folders, packed with learning materials, tasks and activities for the learner to undertake. It is well structured to encourage development and is clear to follow. The language used is easily comprehensible and stylised, to re-create the idea of a tutor, speaking directly to the learner. What I also liked about the course was the accessible explanations of terminology, which also encouraged further reading to broaden the knowledge.

The tutor support was of a high quality and correspondence was responded to quickly. I have found the assistance vital for my own motivation and to assist my own reflective abilities. In particular, I feel that the support has helped me to develop my writing style to be concise, but also my analytical ability (Especially regarding language!)

Unlike my previous subject, coursework was an element within this qualification. For those who have checked AQA’s guides, they may find the process to be initially daunting, as I did. My tutor was happy to inform me of the overall processes in a clear manner, while also informing me of what guides to study for further clarification. She also gave extremely stimulating ideas on how to approach the coursework, consider areas of study and continuously encouraged expansion and detail at a high level.

I would highly recommend the provider due to the thorough and clear reading materials, the level of tutor support provided, and on a personal level, I feel that the content has greatly improved my subject knowledge as a Level 2 English support tutor (for a different provider). It has also progressed my ability to write coherently and analyse text.
