UK Distance Learning - Psychology - My options


I am looking at my options for studying Psychology. I would like to know if there are any options for UK distance learning to enable me to study around work commitments. Anybody been in this boat?

Hi Paul,

We have some advice on distance learning here:

I would also suggest you look at the Open University:

If you live in London, you could consider Birkbeck College which offers undergraduate education by attendance in the evenings only:

If you find an undergraduate Psychology degree course by distance learning, you should check that it is offered by a reputable institution. I don't think our Course Chooser contains a full list of the options for undergraduate distance learning in Psychology. Often, distance learning is reserved for masters degree courses.

I hope this helps.
