Distance learning

If you are unable to study full-time, Nottingham Law School delivers many courses with distance and part-time learning options.

Studying a part-time or distance learning course allows you to combine study with work and other commitments. It gives you the flexibility to study at your own pace, as and when it suits you, with some courses offering three, four or five year routes.

Distance-learning students come from a variety of backgrounds. They bring a stimulating mix of experiences to the Law School. Tuition is offered during intensive teaching weekends each academic year. Although attendance is not necessarily compulsory, many students find them to be a key element in their progression and ultimate success.

Wherever you live in the world, it is possible to study with Nottingham Law School and receive the same support as UK-based students. Our staff will help you with your studies and you can connect with other students via NOW, our online virtual learning environment.
