If recent plans for Higher Education Fees go ahead, Distance Learning could become more popular as students look to save money

A Virgin Media Business executive has said Lord Browne’s plans for higher education funding could encourage more students to apply for distance learning courses.

Andrew McGrath, commercial director of the business broadband provider, pointed out that many analysts have claimed the proposals to increase tuition fees could lead to tertiary education becoming “a privilege, not a right”.

He said if the government implements the plans laid out by Lord Browne, prospective undergraduates may look into the possibility of distance learning in a bid to lessen the financial strain of university.

With the huge increase in University tuition fees it is no surprise many students will be forced to seek alternatives.  NCC Home Learning provides a range of accredited Distance Learning courses from our highly sought after Access to Higher Education Diploma to the fascinating Zoology Diploma.  There is sure to be something to suit every need so why not take a look at our full A-Z Course Listing.
