Online learning gives you the option to learn from a place and at a time that suits you, without having to come along to classes in college. You can schedule it around work, family commitments and hobbies.
Some courses have submission deadlines, but we can be flexible and arrange extensions. We do have two set times of year where courses need to be completed, but you are notified in advance, so you can plan for this.
All you need is internet and access to a PC, laptop or tablet and you’re good to go. We do offer some courses in paper format, this will be stated on the course information or you can call us to check if paper option is available.
Most courses are available all year, and we still work over the summer unlike face to face classes.
We also have a dedicated team of administrators and markers who are very friendly and supportive. As an online learning student you are entitled to benefits such as a student card, Office 365, library access.
Do you work full time or part time? Are you short of time to commit to a taught class? Not able to travel to college? Struggle finding childcare?
Do you want to build your confidence and get back into education? Do you want to learn something new? Then Online Learning is for you!
