Study in 2018, we know there are a lot of you doing this very thing. We hope you all had a great Christmas and that you are all set for a good year ahead.

Our office is back up to full pace with holidays over and we look forward to working with you all throughout the year as you work through your courses.

January is a really busy month and one question we get regularly asked by prospective students is about our self paced learning and are there any requirements to stay current and how does it work.

So here is my effort at explaining all that.  For existing students this is no change but just to cover it for new folk here goes:

Our self paced learning is a very good way for people leading  busy lifestyles to balance study and their work and home life. As we have always had we do stipulate that to stay current and enrolled we do require students to be actively working on their course and our definition of actively working means you must submit at least one assignment per 12 month period which we feel is very reasonable. So provided one assignment is submitted in a 12 month period, you can take as long as you need to complete your course.  We are really pleased to be able to offer this as most places only give you 12 months in total to complete.

The reason we have this is because when you enrol we assign you a tutor.  A  tutor can only manage a certain number of students.  If you are enrolled and not submitting any assignments then that tutor could have been reallocated to an active student so that is the main reason behind the policy.

So I hope I have done a reasonable job of explaining this and best wishes to everyone studying in 2018.
