We would encourage students to serioulsy 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 acheive, explain you may require peace and space to study at certain times. The more you involve them the more likey 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 12 month tuition period. If you require additional time an extension may be available. Extensions are arranged at an additional cost as and when needed.
Students are able to complete their course purely online though our ilearn it easy student portal or choose to receive a hard copy of the course lessons via the post. If you choose to receive a hard copy please note you will also be required to upload any completed assignments via the student portal. We do not accept course assignments via post.

Students should understand that part of any study programme requires an element of research on their part. As technology moves forward at a rapid pace a visit to the local library is no longer the chosen method of accessing information. Students are also expected to use the internet for research purposes and can expect to be referred to various blogs and websites such as You Tube and Google amongst other specific websites relating to their chosen subject. Tutors will not give you the answers to complete your assignments.
All correspondence with your tutor can be viewed via the portal along with all feedback and comments on submitted assignments. Access this from anywhere in the world from any device connected to the internet. True flexibility
Students can expect to receive feedback on submitted assignments within 7 days. However we expect delays on this timescale during holiday periods e.g Summer holidays July/August, bank holidays and xmas. We appreciate your patience during these periods
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 lets 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.

Please email email@example.com 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.
All returns must remain unused and in resaleable condition. This complies with distance selling regulations 2000. All students are welcome to return their course to us for any reason as long as we have been notified within the 7 days as above.
