The UK Customs Academy offers Distance Learning courses for all of its professional qualifications.
The courses provide students with flexibility to start their studies at any point within the year and access the learning materials whenever they like, from any location in the world.
The Distance Learning courses are composed of comprehensive notes, which follow the syllabus requirements of the professional qualifications. The material guides students through their chosen course, defining and explaining the concepts and procedures of customs and international trade.
All courses contain self-assessment tests, which enable students to determine how they are progressing.
Our level 3 and higher qualifications provide access to a tutor for each of the modules. Students are able to submit interim (formative) assignments for marking and informative feedback, which helps identify where they may need to target further study and revision. Tutors are also available, by phone or e-mail, to answer enquiries related to the syllabus, provide explanations and further reading.
All our tutors are appropriately qualified to teach the courses, and all have worked or are working within the customs profession.
When you take a level 3 or higher qualification through the UK Customs Academy you will automatically receive Student Member of the Institute of Export & International Trade through our reciprocal arrangements with the Institute, giving you access to an additional range of benefits and services that can support your studies and international trade career.
