  1. 1
    Will I be able to afford it? How do I pay?

    There’s good evidence that getting a university qualification leads to better career prospects and a higher salary. Paying for higher education is an investment in your future. Of course, we understand it’s a big commitment, so we suggest you look at the various funding options available on page 16.

  2. 2
    What do the fees include?

    We want to make sure there are no hidden extras. So our fees include:

    • all the study materials you need and student handbooks

    • your tutors, who you can contact on ilearn or by email whenever you need to

    • your student support co-ordinator, who you can contact by email or phone whenever you need to

    • access to our virtual learning environment, ilearn

    • an online induction process.

  3. 3
    I have plenty of work experience in my area of interest but no real qualifications. Can I still apply?

    For many of our courses, experience can be just as valuable as qualifications, so you might not be at a disadvantage. We look at your application on its own merits. Please call us on the number at the top of the page if you’re not sure whether you’ll be eligible or not.

  4. 4
    I already have a qualification. Will this qualification allow me to gain exemptions from the course and will the cost be reduced?

    It depends on your particular course, and again, we look at your application on its own merits. The best way to find out is to apply. We can sometimes shorten the course if you’ve got a previous qualification, or even relevant work experience, but can’t necessarily reduce the cost of the course.

  5. 5

    With distance learning, you follow a UK university course without the need to visit a campus. You study anywhere in the world, whenever it’s convenient for you. And you choose the pace you’re comfortable with. We provide you with all the study materials you need, tutors for academic support, and a student support co-ordinator who will help make your studying successful and Online distance learning makes studying flexible, affordable and interactive.

    Are the study materials text-based or online?

    All study materials are online, and are accessed through our Virtual Learning Environment, ilearn. Don’t worry; you’ll get everything you need to complete your course successfully. Some students choose to undertake additional reading or research outside of ilearn. If you choose to do this, a list of recommended reading is available.

    Do I need a computer?

    You must have access to a computer and an internet connection to study with RDI. There are also specific software requirements for some courses, but this will be outlined during the application process. Please call us on the number at the top of the page for more information. If you do not have access to the internet 100% of the time, printable materials are available to download.

  8. 8
    Will there be any classroom lectures or workshops? Will I be able to meet my tutor face-to-face?

    Unless your particular course mentions it, there are no lectures or workshops. All of our courses are delivered via online distance learning, but you’ll be able to contact your tutors or student support coordinator whenever you need to. Some modules do include optional taught sessions, delivered online via Adobe Connect.

  9. 9
    How long does it take?

    It depends on your particular course; please see the course pages for details. Generally you’ll spend as much or as little time as you would if you were doing a campus-based part-time course on a part time basis.

  10. 10
    I work full-time and have a family, how will I find the time?

    Distance learning is all about flexibility. With all of our courses, you can fit your studies around your work and personal commitments. You can study from as little as eight hours per week depending on your course. If you need to take a break from your studies, your student support co-ordinatorwill be there to help.

    You will set your own pace. Many of our students have work and family commitments. Read what some of them have to say.

    Can I study anywhere in the world?

    Yes, you can study wherever you are in the world. If your course contains a formal examination, you will have to attend an approved venue. We will support you in finding a venue in any country.

  12. 12
    Will my qualification be the same one as campus students get?

  13. 13
    How many hours per week should I devote?

    It depends on your particular course, but we recommend between 8 and 15 hours. You need to be able to plan your time well and keep the momentum going.

  14. 14
