Work-focussed, Flexible Distance Learning

For experienced professionals who want to upgrade their operational skills and gain a degree level qualification, our online 'top-up' degree programmes are designed to interface with your role, enhance work-based projects and can be completed part-time from anywhere in the world within 18-24 months.

The University of Lincoln has been providing work-based distance learning courses for a number of years and we have an experienced team that can support you from the point of application to the completion of your degree. With a suite of degree programmes available for working professionals across several industry specialisms, we aim to provide a highly flexible approach to enable our distance learners to balance part-time degree-level study around work and family life.

At the core of our distance learning approach is recognition of the value of years of professional experience. Through our 'top-up' degrees, industry professionals can translate relevant work-based experience into credits equivalent to the first two years of an undergraduate degree.

Our distance learning courses are underpinned by academic expertise of specialists from our Lincoln International Business School and accredited by recognised UK industry bodies such as the Chartered Management Institute (CMI).
