Register From Home

No need to stand in long queues waiting to sign up. You can register from the comfort of your home. Just give us a call or complete a form for a call back. Our course experts will help you choose a course without stepping outside.

Study From the Comfort of Your Home

There are no classes when you study via distance learning. This means that all your learning and studying takes place at home. You have the option to choose when and where you want to study. Whether it’s in the garden or at a cafe, the choice is yours.

Save on Travelling Costs

Since there are no classes to attend, you won’t need to head to campus. You will be able to save on travelling costs since you’ll study at home. This is one of the many ways distance learning is an affordable study option. 

Work and Study Opportunities

Work experience is vital when you enter the job market. So if you want to study and get relevant on-the-job training and experience, you can study part-time. This allows you to have a full-time job where you can earn money and get the experience that will boost your career.

Flexible Learning

Need to take care of some responsibilities? Were you asked to overtime? Well with distance learning, you have the flexibility that will help divide your time so you can take care of all your duties. You won’t need to sacrifice anything important to take on your studies.

No Need to get Student Accomodation

When you live in a remote area, getting to campus can be difficult. So in these cases, you might have thought about getting student accommodation. But when you study remotely, you don’t need to give up your bed. 

Get ALL the Resources you Need

Worried about how you’ll get your coursework? Don’t stress, we will give you all the study material you need. You will get study guides, textbooks as well as your assignments. And if you’re studying a matric course, we will also send you matric past exam papers.

Have Your Coursework Delivered to you

You might be wondering how you will get all your resources. When you study with us, all your study material will be delivered to you. Just pick a spot nearest to you, and we will deliver your material via reliable courier services.

Skilled Tutors Available to you

When you’re on campus, you can simply take a walk to your tutor. But when you study with us, you’ll still have expert tutors available to you. You won’t need to schedule a consultation. Pop them an email or complete a tutor contact form and they will get back to you.

Assistance From Student Support Services

We know you want your studies to be hassle-free. But problems can come up at any time. Fear not, our student support services will come to the rescue. They will assist you throughout your studies. Whether you have issues or questions, you can count on them.

Access to Online Study Groups

One of the best ways to learn is with your fellow students. With our online study groups, you will be able to communicate with other students. This is the perfect opportunity to share knowledge and offer support to each other.
