Remote courses

Delivered via online classes, with additional self-study time.

For those confident in their ability to learn independently, but would benefit from the interaction of a virtual class, with no on-campus attendance required.

Remote learning with Gloucestershire College.

How it works

You will participate in set number of virtual classes, read a variety of course materials, complete practical activities and carry out additional research until you undertake one or more exams to complete the course.

You will be taught by a dedicated GC lecturer, who you can discuss course content with, plus an online support team who can help with any technical issues.

Why learn remotely?

  • Industry expertise - our lecturers are experts in their fields, so you'll be learning from the best and understand practical applications in the world of work.
  • Flexible - around the virtual classes, you choose when and where you study, meaning remote learning can fit around existing home and work commitments.
  • Personalised support - you'll get time with your tutor with no disruptions from other students.
  • Self-paced - work through the course material at your own pace and revisit topics or pause study for additional research.
  • Improve your CV - remote learning demonstrates self motivation, time management and digital skills, which employers love.
  • Save money - with no need to attend a classroom, you'll save on commuting costs.
