Benefits

When you choose to study with ICS, not only do you get the chance of the qualification, experience or skills you need to achieve your ambitions, but you also enjoy some of the many benefits of distance learning with us.

Two common reasons for not fulfilling your potential are time and money, as well as feeling that you may not be able to cope. But with us, you can save time and money while being backed by a support network that puts you and your needs first.

Learn when you like and where you like

With no term times, your course starts when you do*. This means you can take your time and only start your course when you feel ready. You don't have to attend lectures or go to school or college, so you can study in your front room, library, on the train or wherever you like. This flexibility helps us to keep costs down and gives you the opportunity to fit your course around your life. You could also decide to do the course quickly; you don't have to wait for next week's lesson and we can help you get the qualifications or skills you want faster than any traditional learning institution.

*Degrees studied with UEL are subject to specific start dates in line with university admissions.

Don't give up the day job and choose the payment method you want

With distance learning you study when it suits you, so you don't have to give up your day job or occupation when you begin a course. With our help and payment options, you'll develop your study skills and learn to fit your course around your job and other commitments.

Enjoy a full support from start to finish

Distance learning does not mean studying alone; in fact, with us, you'll have the reassurance of total support from our skilled tutors, student advisors and mentors to guide you through your studies. You also enjoy all the benefits of your Student Community, our Facebook and Twitter pages and a range of online resources. Finally, you'll be joining thousands of other learners with similar aims and aspirations.

Find the right course for you

We offer over 200 flexible courses so you can be sure you'll find the right one for you. Whether you're looking to prepare for university, get a degree, change your career, fulfil a passion or learn something completely new, we will help, guide and support you to get you to where you want to be.
