Go from GCSEs to a Degree with learndirect

1st December 23

Have you always wanted a degree but don’t have the foundations to get there? Do you want to get qualified but don’t have the time to go back to college or go to a university campus? Well, with learndirect, you can study your GCSEs, all the way up to a degree in one place, and all online.

We understand that the traditional education system doesn't work for everyone. That's why we offer an alternative that removes the need for in-person attendance. With us, you can initiate your academic journey without stepping foot inside a classroom, breaking free from the constraints of traditional institutes.

Choose Online GCSEs or Functional Skills

While GCSEs are the traditional route that people take to obtain Level 2 qualifications, you do have other options when you study post-compulsory schooling. You can explore our online GCSE courses or opt for Functional Skills instead, but please note that our online Functional Skills courses cover English and Maths only.

Most employers and higher education institutions will require a Level 2 qualification in English and/or Maths, but if you want to study other subjects, our online GCSEs are delivered in a variety of subjects, such as:

Your journey begins here, from the very basics to a solid foundation, all in one place. Our online learning platform allows you to tailor your studies around your lifestyle, providing the flexibility you need to succeed. Fast-track your education and move seamlessly to the next phase of your academic journey.

Study Online GCSEs and Online A-Levels

Choose Online A-Levels or an Access to Higher Education Diploma

Like GCSEs, A-Levels are the traditional route for many people choosing a Level 3 qualification, and you can select from a range of our online A-Level courses. However, if you’d like to avoid taking any exams but still achieve the equivalent of A-Levels, then consider our Access to Higher Education Diplomas.

They are completed 100% online and focus on vocational subjects that get you prepared for degree-level study. You won’t need to take a single exam as the course is assessed through assignments, and you’ll achieve the equivalent of 3 A-Levels. We offer a diverse range of subjects, including:

Get Qualifications in Quick Time

Time is of the essence, and we value yours. Our online GCSEs and A-Levels can be completed in less than a year, allowing you to fast-track your education compared to the two-year commitment at a traditional college. We prioritise efficiency, ensuring you can reach your goals faster without compromising on the quality of education.

Study an Online Degree

Attainable Degrees, Reduced Financial Pressure

Education should empower, not burden. Once you have achieved your Level 2 and Level 3 qualifications, you can progress up the academic ladder to degree level. Unlike the traditional route incurring tuition fees of around £18,500 for the first two years of study, our Online Degree Pathways offer the same quality education at a fraction of the cost.

Our online programme represents Year 1 and Year 2 of a degree, and once completed, you’ll progress on to one of our esteemed partnered universities for your third year. We have a range of subjects that fill industry skills gaps, including:
