Online and Distance Learning

Retrain or upskill with our online courses

You can choose from lots of online and distance learning courses for adults aged 19+. You can study online with Nottingham College, in the comfort of your own home or from your workplace.

Many of these part-time courses are funded for adults aged 19+ who are looking to retrain or upskill. You can see funding information on the individual course pages.

We understand that the COVID-19 pandemic, and new technologies at home and at work, have led to higher demand for remote learning options, as people look to retrain or build skills for the future.

You could choose an in-depth qualification, or a shorter Continuing Professional Development (CPD) course of around four hours, for example.

Whatever you decide, all the courses are delivered in bite-sized chunks. This makes them ideal for people who are looking for flexible study options.
