My Story


“My interest in innovative, modern methods of learning and teaching at universities is what compelled me to get involved with the Bachelor of Law distance programme. I was young when I had my children – I’d just left school – and I was in my first year at a university in presence. I quickly realised that it’s almost impossible to study at a classic university and look after children. With just one event each month, studying at the Swiss Distance Learning University was much more within the realms of possibility. My daily life has become a lot more difficult since beginning my distance degree in history, but it’s also got much more interesting. I’m now managing the balancing act of studying and family quite well. I haven’t regretted my decision at all.”
