Course duration will vary dependant on student commitment, effort and ability. Overall guided learning hours are approx 700. This should be used as a guideline only and completion times will vary hugely.We would encourage students to seriously consider how they plan to complete their chosen course prior to enrolment. Students should think about how they are going to study, where they are going to study and how often. Be realistic! 

Speak to family members and help them to understand what you are trying to achieve, explain you may require peace and space to study at certain times. The more you involve them the more likely you are to get them on your side. Students are reminded that the time in which they complete is purely down to them as an individual.

Completion can be as quickly or as slowly as you wish within the tuition period. If you require additional time an extension may be available. 

Students are able to select how they wish to study.

Paper based: Receive your course pack in the post in hard copy and correspond direct with your tutor via email

or

Online: Access our premium online cloud based learning system where you are able to access all of your course lessons, assignments and tutor correspondence in one place. Download the APP and access your course information on any device from anywhere in the world with an internet signal. Whichever way you choose to study is up to you.!

Please be advised students cannot choose both methods/formats. You will be required to select your preferred method at checkout.

Q: Why can't i use both methods?
A:  Each method has been developed and written in such a way that having both will cause total confusion. Both formats are laid out and taught in totally different ways hence we ask students to choose their preferred method at the enrolment stage.

In order to help students with the terms and conditions of their enrolment we have tried to keep things simple and easy to understand. No jargon or small print. Our full terms and conditions can be viewed here.

In our experience the main and most important part of these terms for our students is the cancellation & returns policy. So let’s explain these clearly to avoid any misunderstanding.

Firstly, we would request that students check the course syllabus and content immediately upon receipt. This is vitally important. Please ensure that any qualification awarded at the end of your course meets your needs. If in doubt call us on 0121 288 0181 to check before you enrol.

If for any reason you wish to cancel and return your course to us for a refund you are welcome to do so as long as you notify us within 14 days of receipt at the delivery address. Please email accounts@ukopencollege.co.uk stating your name, address, invoice number requesting to cancel. We will then respond to you with further instruction. If you have received a hard copy of your course you will be required to return this at your own cost via courier/recorded delivery before a full refund will be issued. If you have paid a deposit and signed a student agreement, you will be charged a £30 cancellation fee. This will be deducted from any deposit paid in addition to any postage charges incurred by us.

All returns must remain unused and in resalable condition. This complies with distance selling regulations. All students are welcome to return their course to us for any reason as long as we have been notified within the 14 days as above. Unfortunately, if notification to cancel is received outside of this period your request for a refund will be declined. This does not affect your statutory rights

Please call our accounts team direct on 0121 288 0181 if you have any questions regarding our cancellation and returns policy. It will only cost you a phone call
