Study from home with a top 30 UK university

You don’t have to move to Leicester to study for a postgraduate qualification with the University of Leicester. Our online distance learning courses have students in more than a hundred countries, on every continent (except Antarctica!), studying a wide range of subjects at different levels. Whatever the actual distance involved – the other side of the planet or just down the road – distance learning with the University of Leicester is a great way to boost your career alongside your existing commitments.

Why Leicester

The University of Leicester is a leading research and teaching university with more than 30 years’ experience offering high quality distance learning courses. Over 25,000 students have graduated from our distance learning courses. Unlike some distance learning providers, our distance learning courses are taught by the same academic staff who teach our undergraduates and postgraduates on campus. You are assured of a real university education and a real university qualification.

Supporting your studies

A postgraduate qualification by distance learning is a great investment in your future. At Leicester we offer a range of financial benefits partially offset the cost of your degree, including a Merit Scholarship, and Alumni Scholarship and a Full Fee Instalment Incentive.

Supporting our students

As a Leicester distance learning student, you will have access to the University Library’s comprehensive online catalogue containing thousands of electronic journals and over 350,000 books. You will also have full access to the same student support services as our on-campus students, including our award-winning Career Development Service and the Students’ Union, which has a dedicated Distance Learning Officer.
