Why do Students get Assignments?
As a student you are given assignments to improve your skills and knowledge on a subject. Assignments are also a way of learning about your topics. This helps prepare you for your exams that are after your assignments.
What Kind of Assignments Will I do at Skills Academy?
With a wide range of courses on offer, there isn’t just one type of assignment that you will get. You would choose your course and then have a look at what types of assignments you would get. Keep in mind that all courses are unique and therefore will all have unique assignments. With Skills Academy being a distance learning institution, there are no practical assignments such as presentations. This comes as a great benefit if you have stage fright.
How are Assignments Given to Students?
All your assignments are couriered to you. That’s right! Once you have completed your registration process, we courier all your study materials such as past question papers and text books and we also include all your assignments. This gives you enough time to get an understanding of your subjects and to do your assignments.
Do Lectures Help With Assignments?
Yes, lecturers help all students who have difficulties with assignments. Many people think that distance learning institutions don’t take care of their students. We, however, are not the same. Even though you might not have any physical classes, lecturers have a very hands-on approach when it comes to helping students.
How to get in Contact With Lecturers:
You can simply call or email you lecturers or tutors and they will be more than willing to help you.
What is the Assignment Process?
With Skills Academy you don’t have to leave the comfort of your home to hand in assignments. Students lead very busy lives and this is why we have made submitting assignments easy.
Skills Academy Assignment Process:
- Scan your assignment
- Compose an email addressing your lecturer
- Include your student number and subject name
When do I get my Results?
After following the assignment process, there is a 24 hour waiting period before you get your results. We don’t want you to nervously wait for your results for weeks and therefore try to get your results back to you a day after you have submitted. This quick response allows you to keep track of your progress as you go through your course.
I Failed my Assignment, What Happens now?
With Skills Academy you will never be a failure. Everyone learns and understands work differently. All students are given a second chance to do their assignment. In the unfortunate case that you don’t meet the pass requirements for your assignments, your lectures will make notes and comments on your assignments.
At Risk Policy
The at risk policy is a list that helps lecturers identify which students need more attention and acceptance. If you aren’t doing too well in your exams or assignments, lecturers will then get in contact with you to help you pass your course. This list is highly confidential and only seen by tutors and lecturers.
