Distance Learning

PDF icon courses for dl4d.pdf491.95 KB

DL4D (Distance Learning for Development) are short courses providing high-quality postgraduate training to those working in the field of international development. This model is academically flexible. Short courses enable you to study across disciplines and acquire the knowledge you feel you need from a range of courses. 

Since all DL4D short courses are provided at a distance, they are ideal for professionals wanting to study whilst working part-time or for those living abroad, as travelling expenses will not be incurred.

All courses are available as stand-alone units of study.

Some courses are only available at certain times of year. Check the details of the courses through the individual college sites for further information. 

Distance Learning for Development (DL4D) portal is closing down. Please refer to the attached document for a list of current courses. 

The DL4D project, which ran until 2015, sought to encourage innovative approaches to teaching and learning for those living and working in developing countries. Distance learning is a flexible and low-cost alternative to conventional postgraduate study, enabling people to study whenever they want and from wherever they are in the world.

We recommend that you contact the University of London distance learning for more information, or the individual Bloomsbury Colleges.

The DL4D project is undertaken by LIDC on behalf of the UK Department of Health. It involves conducting a global review of health training at a distance in low and middle income countries to provide a comprehensive overview of distance health training initiatives around the world. The report from this study was published in March 2011. More information
