What Will You Study

This course gives you all the benefits of the excellent Lancaster ELT, without having to leave your work environment. The Distance programme mirrors the on-campus version closely in terms of structure, content and methods of study.

The programme is entirely web based, and allows you to focus both your coursework and dissertation on issues and problems in your own educational context.

Modules are taken in order, and assessed every 10 weeks by 5,000 word assignment with a final 15,000 word dissertation. Lancaster University staff provide excellent supervision and support.
