Distance learning courses: focused around you


Distance learning courses used to be called 'correspondence courses', or 'home study courses'. Some people call them 'e-courses' or 'online courses'.

Whatever you call them, people find them very convenient and highly effective.

We run:

Anyone can study with us. You just need a computer, an internet connection and software like Word.

When you do a fully accredited home study course with us, you:

  • study anywhere, any time
  • do not waste time and money getting to classes
  • have quick access to a tutor
  • get marked work back quickly: usually within 24 hours
  • keep your job. Many students are changing careers
  • ​save money: distance learning courses are usually cheapest

    What you get

  • Student reviews

    Student testimonials

    The course was excellent, and exceeded my expectations. I am now brimming with ideas for my blog. CTJT really do make you feel like you’re the only student they have. I enjoyed the course so much I’ve signed up for two more courses!

    Beverley Duddridge: fashion blogging course

    The course went beyond my expectations as it covered many different types of copywriting and also included a bit about web writing and PR. Cleland Thom was the best tutor I’ve ever had through distance learning.

    Tiffany Shand: copywriting course

    Within three months of beginning the course I secured a job as a journalist for a local newspaper. The course met my expectations in every way. This is my second distance learning course - an Open University course, did not live up to my expectations.

    Adele Land: journalism course

    I really enjoyed the quick responses to the work that I sent in. I tried another distance learning course before this one, but being in South Korea meant it took a long time to send and receive work. I’m even thinking about taking another course!

    Daniel Deacon: proofreading & editing course

    Communication was first class and very quick - sometimes within the hour. The tutorial support was second to none. The course content was spot on - it could not have been improved.
