Why Should I Study Through Distance Learning?

Distance Learning is a very beneficial manner of studying. Here are some of the benefits of distance learning:

  • Study wherever it is convenient: You have the opportunity to study from any place when you study through distance learning as there are no physical classes
  • Create your own schedule: With no physical classes, you will be able to create your own schedule that suits you best
  • Work while you study: With Distance Learning, you will have the opportunity to work while you complete your studies. This is a great way to gain an income and promote your education
  • Save money: You can save money on travel expenses as you do not have to attend any physical classes. Because there are no physical classes, Distance Learning is also cheaper in general
Distance Learning Courses

Frequently Asked Questions

Distance Learning courses are only recognised if the institution that offers the course is accredited. Bellview’s Distance Learning courses are accredited, so your Distance Learning qualification will be recognised.

One of the biggest purposes of Distance Learning is to overcome barriers of place and time. With Distance Learning, students can receive a quality education from anywhere and complete their studies on their own time.

This results in students having the opportunity to learn even if they cannot follow a rigidly set schedule. Students will also be able to get quality studies at a cheaper cost.

There are several ways in which Distance Learning can be approached. Most of these methods are used alongside each other:

  • Video conferences: An interactive student-teacher setting where conversations about topics happen in real-time through an online platform
  • Hybrid distance education: Students receive deadlines for certain tasks, but can work on these tasks whenever they have time. They will then usually be given access to new content once they have submitted their work
  • Open schedule online courses: Students receive all course material online and are yet again given time to complete work at their own pace as long as they meet their deadline
  • Fixed online courses: There are designated online classes that you will need to attend and you are often given a specific amount of time to complete your work

Distance Learning is just as effective (if not even more effective) than face-to-face learning.

This is because the education is of high quality and also allows room for flexibility regarding learning. Students do not have the added time pressure or extra expenses tied to in-person learning which can affect studies positively.

As long as you are committed to putting in the effort, Distance Learning can become even more effective than face-to-face learning.

Although both are similar concepts, there are differences between Distance Learning and Online Learning.

Online learning involves in-person interaction between students and tutors regularly along with online classes. With Distance Learning, you will not be required to physically interact with teachers or students.

Distance Learning involves using technology and devices to study from remote locations and not going to classes or a physical campus.

This makes Distance Learning a flexible study process as you can work around other commitments.

You simply need to register for your course and then work through your material when you get the chance to prepare for your examinations.

Despite the differences in the way that you will learn, Distance Learning and regular learning are equal in credibility. If your Distance Learning course is accredited, you will receive a qualification identical to a regular learning qualification.

Aside from the general personal documents you will need for application, you will need to have an electronic device such as a laptop with internet connection since your studies will be done online. You will also need to pick a good learning space where you can concentrate and study optimally.

Some general tips for students who are studying through Distance Learning include:

  • Creating a schedule/routine
  • Communicate with lecturers and fellow students
  • Set up a study environment

Distance Learning can be beneficial to many students. Distance Learning can be especially beneficial for students who:

  • Do not want to spend extra expenses on traveling to physical classrooms
  • Wish to create their own study schedule
  • Prefer learning by themselves rather than engaging in a classroom setting
  • Want to further their studies while they work
  • Want to further their studies at a generally cheaper rate than full-time studies

Distance Learning means no physical classes. Instead, you will complete your studies from wherever you want to whenever you want to.

Yes, ICB courses can be completed through Distance Learning at an Institution that is accredited to offer ICB courses. Your studies will be completed online.
