Congratulations to all our Member Colleges and their students!
 

The Association of Distance Learning Colleges

This is the only trade association in the UK dedicated to distance learning providers.

Our Member Colleges all sign and agree to abide by our Code of Ethics. This Code is your assurance of the high standards of all our course providers.

All our courses are fully tutored – so as you work through your learning materials you will always have advice, guidance, constructive criticism – you will never be left struggling or baffled on your own. Many have active student forums, where you can chat, exchange ideas and ask for help from fellow students.

Our Member Colleges can provide between them distance learning courses in a vast range of subjects. Study at home, at work or wherever is most convenient to you. Go our Courses pages to explore, or type the name of the course you are looking for in the box.

For the best in Distance Learning
