Distance learning

Distance learning has become a popular choice for students, and many educational and training establishments in the UK offer it alongside face to face education. 

Advantages of distance learning

Distance learning allows you to:

  • study for recognised and accredited UK qualifications
  • have the flexibility to combine studies with professional or family commitments
  • study in your own time at your own pace
  • reduce the costs of your studies
  • sit your exams at the British Council in  your home country and obtain top UK qualifications.

How to register for distance learning?

Find a course of study and confirm your distance learning programme by visiting our Study UK portal.

Once you have confirmed your distance learning program:

  • Contact the university to inform them that you will sit your examination at the British Council in Azerbaijan.
  • Check with your university that they will provide the dates and time of your examination/s.

Examination fees

  • In most cases the candidate is responsible for covering the administration and courier fee for examination materials.
  • The courier fee depends on the weight of the package and location of the university.
