Students on our online and distance learning courses are truly diverse, studying in more than 70 countries from across the globe.
There is no typical student, but the majority are mature, are working in professional jobs, and are having to balance their studies not only with work commitments but also with family life. The experience and expertise that students bring to their courses helps to enrich the experience for everyone.
The programmes below provide a selection of student profiles. Our students have provided their open and honest insights into the York distance learning study process and the impact their course has had in their work life.
Several of our students also kindly agreed to be videoed answering some FAQs.
