Why Distance Learning?

Distance Learning lets you fit studying into your busy life, giving you the flexibility to manage work and families .

Who are Distance Learning courses for ?

Distance Learning courses are for all different types of people and they would suit anyone who would find it hard to attend a college because of their location, time commitments or personal situation. Learning can take place in the home, library or anywhere that is convenient for you.

What advantages are there to Distance Learning?

You can carry on with your job and life, and learn at a time that is suitable for you. People undertake our distance learning courses for many reasons including enhancing their job skills, improving promotion prospects, an interest in the subject or enhancing their job prospects. Employers look for employees who have the skills and appropriate qualifications for the vacancy they are wishing to fill. The course you have completed will show prospective employers that you have taken the initiative to develop and structure your skills within a learning framework.

How is Distance Learning carried out?

Many of our courses are available online, or paper based. Either way we will provide all the course materials you will need. You will also need to be ready to commit to the deadline dates that we set for elements of your course.

This Nescot College Prospectus website describes the facilities and courses which the College intends to offer during the academic year commencing Autumn 2020. The web pages are prepared in advance of the academic year to which they relate and every effort has been made to ensure that the information contained in these pages is helpful, fair and accurate at the time of printing. However, this information is subject to change over time.

Nescot will take reasonable steps to provide the courses and services as described, however, the College cannot guarantee the provision of any course or facility. Some circumstances, such as staff changes, resource limitations and other factors over which the College has no control, such as industrial action or a change in the law or the level of demand for a particular programme or module (please note that this list is non-exhaustive), may result in the College having to withdraw or change aspects of the programmes, modules and/or student services detailed on the website. This could include, but not necessarily be limited to, programme/module content, staffing, the location where the programme/module is taught or the manner of teaching delivery, and the facilities provided to deliver or support the programme. Where circumstances demand an unavoidable change or where it is necessary for the College to discontinue a programme of study, Nescot will take all reasonable steps to minimise the effect and all proposed changes will be notified to potential applicants who have registered an interest in the relevant programme at the earliest possible opportunity as well as being reflected on the College’s website. In addition, any changes between the website and the proposed course and services will be notified to applicants at the time of making an offer.
