Flexible distance learning at Leeds Beckett


01 Apr, 2020

Studying a distance learning course at Leeds Beckett University offers the convenience and flexibility to make education work for you. Whether you are looking to pursue the career you have built in the Armed Forces, or if you’re currently preparing to leave and looking for a change, we have an option available. Our entry requirements are flexible too, which offers people with different experiences and qualifications the opportunity to pursue their desired path.

Leeds Beckett offers more than 40 postgraduate distance learning courses across a range of subjects. All of our distance learning modules are individually designed, offering the same excellent teaching experience as the students on campus, but in bite-sized, more manageable online activities. You’ll have access to our Virtual Learning Environment (VLE), which is a hub that includes a number of resources such as course materials, IT support and our student support services. It is also home to our online library, which offers access to more than 200,000 digital resources available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.

Our experience of running distance learning courses means that we understand the pressures of studying while balancing work and lifestyle commitments. That’s why we offer you the flexibility to study at your own pace, at a time that suits you, wherever you are in the world.

Throughout your course, you won’t be alone. Our fantastic teaching staff will be with you all the way. You’ll have the support of your module tutor and are encouraged to take part in discussions with your peers using Microsoft Teams. 

We are proud to have been awarded Silver status in the National Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) in recognition of our learning and teaching provision, our course design and because of our links with employers. Courses at Leeds Beckett are renowned throughout many industries, with an impressive 97.7% of our postgraduates in work or further study six months after graduating.
