Distance Learning

Whether you're keen to change the direction of your career, gain a promotion, get back to work or you're simply eager to keep your brain active, distance learning is the ideal solution. You can study a course in your own time and around other commitments, such as your job, children or hobbies.

Students will be given access to resources and guidelines via Moodle platform (virtual learning environment) and can access resources to study at any time that is convenient for them. The tutor will provide feedback to students on draft work before final submission. Students will be encouraged to participate in chat groups to support each other and the Moodle platform will facilitate this remotely.

Key benefits of distance learning are:
1) receive the same qualification as on-campus students
2) study the same courses with course materials made available online via the moodle platform
3) have a similar work to on-campus students
4) have access to instructor support and tutor support
5) can study from anywhere in the world

Distance Learning - Frequently Asked Questions

What is an Assignment?
An assignment is a written work given to students. Students are required to submit each assignment for each subject. The assignment writing process includes planning, reading and making notes, constructing an outline, drafting and editing. click

I haven’t studied for some time, will I be able to manage?
The course materials have been designed to help students improve their skills as well as their knowledge. You are not expected to be an expert in your chosen field of study but you are expected to apply yourself to your reading, note taking and assignments. The most important requirements are motivation and commitment as well as a willingness to learn new skills. Once you become a student, you will be able to find information about the study support available on Moodle (our virtual learning environment).

How many hours a week will I need to study?
The amount of time needed does vary from student to student and from course to course, but as a very rough guide we recommend that you will need to set aside about 10 hours per week for each subject.

Do I need to have internet access?
It is vital you have regular internet access throughout your course as this will help you to benefit from the resources available at Moodle. The College's Virtual Learning Environment, Moodle, will be available to you at any time, from anywhere.

Will my qualification be different than if I had attended a course on campus?
There is no difference between the qualification you receive on a Distance Learning course and the equivalent qualification which you might study for on campus.

Will my certificate have 'distance learning' on it?
No, certificates do not have the mode of study on them. The certificate that you receive will be exactly the same as those received by our campus-based students.

If I need extra support from time to time, how can I get extra support?
Distance learning course is a self-study course with resources available on moodle platform. The student is provided with instructor and tutor support, and assignment feedback from the tutor. If the student requires extra support they can take advantage of extra support (dedicated one to one tutor) which are available on request at mutually agreed times to talk through and discuss specific issues. Extra support is available at an extra cost of £20 per hour.

I don't hold a current passport, what other documents that are accepted?
The Passport is a very effective identity document, other documents that are accepted are Photographic National Identity Card and/or Photographic Drivers Licence (with full name, date of birth, photograph and nationality)

If I have further questions, who do I contact?
We understand that choosing to study a distance learning programme is an important decision and we would like to be able to provide you with as much information as we can to assist you. Please contact us via email at admission@severnbusinesscollege.com for further information.
