A Level Politics Course


Online Politics A Level Course. Brand new and updated. Politics shapes our lives – what we can do, the type of society we live in, the chances we have to succeed. This course is for people who want to understand more about how politics and government actually work. You will learn about the grand ideas and vibrant movements that are transforming the world around us, and also see how seemingly arcane customs and obscure committees hold enormous power.

In summary, this course explains ‘the rules’ of how politics works and looks at how people and politicians operate within – and bend – these rules. To excel, you will need to put aside any preconceptions about politics and keep your eyes open to the world around you – the things you’ll learn about in this course are happening all around you, every day.

One of the biggest concerns for any potential student is the financial commitment involved. UK Open College recognise this and have implemented a pay as you study plan to assist students in spreading any fees involved with their course over a manageable period of time. Students are able to pay a deposit upon enrolment followed by a monthly repayment over a set period of time.

We would encourage students to view any related fees as an investment in their future. The majority of investments will provide a rewarding return over a set period of time. Once qualified and in employment students can expect a fantastic return on their investment year after year.

We offer all UK Based students guaranteed acceptance onto this scheme* upon completion of a signed student agreement. Shortly after paying your deposit our accounts department will contact you direct via telephone to gather the required information to complete the agreement. Once received we will forward a digital document via email for your signature. 

*Contact details, employment details and valid UK bank details with the ability to set up direct debit are required for all students applying for our pay as you study plan. If students are unable to provide this information any application may be declined.

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. Extensions are arranged at an additional cost as and when needed.
 

Students are able to select how they wish to study.

The contract for sitting exams is between you and the centre and we will provide you with comprehensive instructions on when and how to deal with the examination centre. From 2014 exams will be taken in June of each year. 2013 provides the final opportunity to take exams in January. There is no flexibility to take exams at any other time.

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
