Study Programmes in China

“The fact that learners can study online makes our courses very flexible and perfect for studying anywhere in the world.

For those willing to work hard and apply themselves,  the results can be life changing.” 

Simon Abercrombie, Founder and Director of VLUK


Studying for a BTEC qualification with VLUK


Via our online learning platform The Sport Brain™ and with a strong partnership with Pearson, a British exam board in China, Virtual Learning UK (VLUK)  is now offering British BTEC qualifications to learners based outside of the UK.

 Founded in 2008 by two former Physical Education professionals, VLUK was born out of a belief that further studies in sport can improve higher education and career opportunities for young people. 

With an impressive track record of creating, developing and delivering education projects, VLUK has grown and now educates just under 1500 learners each year in the UK, across a range of vocational programmes.

Registered with the Department for Education and Skills (DfES) and Skills Funding Agency (SFA) in the UK, we have passed stringent annual due diligence checks to be allowed to deliver fully accredited, vocational qualifications.

Our education programmes are delivered by qualified and experienced tutors, who provide support and guidance to learners throughout their time of study.

Oliver Chan

Former learner with VLUK

Oliver studied the BTEC Study programme in Sport with VLUK  and went on to study at Loughborough University.

Oliver found studying the BTEC programme helped prepare him for his university course as he had to learn to organise his time effectively in order to meet coursework deadlines.

“Studying online for my BTEC was perfect for me as I was able to complete it around my other studies and the sports that I play.”
