Don’t pay when you don’t study and continue whenever you need to with distance learning.

You need all the help you can get at this time. We are here to support you by giving you time to attend to life’s demands.
What is the next step?
All you need to do is inform us two weeks in advance about when you are planning to take your break.

Here, we will help you with choosing a date when you will continue with your studies again. This will be based on a few factors that are unique to you.
Things to Bear in Mind
The process of applying to take a study break is really simple and we will guide you through it all. There are a few conditions you will have to meet. Let’s explore them below.
3 Month Rule
You cannot take a break within the first three months of registration. This means that you must have been enrolled for a course for more than three months from the date you plan to take your study break. For example, if you registered on the 1 January, you can only take a break by 1st April.
Up To Date With Payments
Before you plan to take your study break, you should ensure that you have paid up your student account in full. If you have outstanding payments, you may not be eligible to take a study break. You can speak to a consultant about how to pay your fees before you begin your break. That way you can have the time you need without any worries.
Two Month Break
We understand that you may need a lot of time to attend to life before resuming your studies. So we offer you a study break for up to two months. Getting back to your studies is simple with us. With distance learning, you can study at your own pace and do not have to worry about falling behind. We will provide you with all the information you need about getting back on track.
Don’t Study. Don’t Pay.
While you are on your break you do not have to worry about your fees. You also do not have to worry about being behind with your studies. You can use this time to take care of yourself so you can be your best when you continue studying. We will help you to find ways to ensure that you receive your qualification at the end of the day. Explore the benefits of distance learning and manage your lifestyle just the way you want. By studying from the comfort of your own home, you get a flexible form of study that allows you to set the pace and still attend to your other responsibilities.
