    Distance Learning Courses

    Building on our 15 years of experience delivering distance learning courses to astronomy students around the world we are pleased to announce the launch of a new suite of courses designed to take advantage of the modern internet and recent developments in astronomy.


    This is an annual exhibition and conference celebrating astronomy and space exploration, held by Astronomy Now magazine at Kensington Conference and Events Centre in west London. It is a two-day event, taking place over a Friday and a Saturday usually in the first half of February. A trade show consisting of dozens of exhibitors and telescope dealers covers three floors of the town hall. The Distance Learning team have attended this event 10 times in the last 14 years.
