Home Study/Distance Learning – with a difference!

This is a home study/distance learning course with personal tutor support throughout providing guidance, feedback, individually marked work – similar to a classroom based course but without the need to attend any classes!

You can study as and when you wish – there are no set time frames to complete your work within other than the overall course time frame.  Some weeks you may wish to study more and then less the following week.  All very flexible!

You can study full time/fast track so you can complete the course as quickly as you wish (some students have completed in 6 months), or part time to fit in around other commitments choosing to complete the course at a slower pace studying from as little as 2 hours-8 hours a week to suit.

Whatever your study or payment plan, the course is open for 26 months.
