The Four Pillars of Excellent Distance Learning

There are a lot of distance learning courses available today. Different forms of learning suit different people. Some prefer to self-study, others prefer face to face tutoring.

At ACS Distance Education, we want our students to get the absolute best from their learning. We work around four pillars of support –


We try to keep our costs as low as possible. We offer a great deal of high quality knowledge, tutor support and administration support with our courses, but we want our courses to be affordable for as many people as possible. Consider the cost per study hour - a 300 pound course that is 100 hrs, is costing 3 pounds per hour. A 150 pound course that is 10 hours long may seem a cheaper course, but at 15 pounds per study hour, the value is questionable.  You can view all of our courses here.  We also have a range of special offers every month. 

Tutor Support

Our courses all include tutor support. In each course, there are a number of assignments that you submit to your tutor for marking and feedback. You can also contact your tutor as many times as you want with any questions or queries. Our tutors are there to support you every step of the way.

All tutors are highly experienced and well qualified in their fields.  They want to share their knowledge and expertise with you.

When you purchase a course from us, you are not simply buying the course notes, you are buying expert help from our tutors.

Time and Flexibility

We live in a busy world and time can be in short supply. We want to help. All of our courses are studied by distance learning. You can start at any time to suit you and work at your own pace.  

You can also study when and where you want to.  Because we offer the options of online or eLearning study methods, you can study in a coffee shop, on the settee, on the beach, in the park, on the train or bus. Wherever you find the time to study, you can study our courses.


Above all else, we set out to provide our students with best learning experience based upon high quality courses and tutorial support delivered via convenient up to date systems.

Remember, you are not just buying course notes with ACS, you are buying a reasonably priced, but comprehensive learning package, which includes –

  • Course notes.
  • Self-assessment quizzes.
  • Assignment feedback.
  • Support from professional tutors with decades of experience who are there to help you throughout the course.
  • With a focus on providing practical elements to your learning that you can apply in the real world, your studies may involve independent research, interviews, practical exercises, assessments, Problem Based Learning projects, and more.
  • The ability to study how, when and where you want to.

We believe that our approach based upon these core pillars of Cost – Tutor Support – Time and Flexibility – Quality – provide you, the student, with the best opportunities for learning.
