This is a two year distance course provided by the University of Borås in Sweden. The main advantage of pursuing this distance qualification is that there are no course fees, however, the course is not CILIP accredited which may affect your options when applying for jobs as some roles require an accredited qualification, although CILIP themselves have said that studying this qualification shouldn’t harm your employment prospects, so it may still be worth going for if you are unsure about staying in libraries in the long term or if financing a qualification is an issue, as the lack of fees mean it is not as stressful an investment!
