Don’t Pay When You Don’t Study
If you love studying and don’t want to quit your course, we are here to help. With us, you can take some downtime from your course. And since you aren’t studying, you don’t have to pay for the months you’re on a break.
How Long can you Take a Break?
You can take a break of up to two months from your course. But before you press pause on your studies, contact our student support team at least two weeks in advance. Let them know that you will be taking leave and when you will continue your studies.
What to Consider When Taking a Study Break
We have your best interests at heart. So to make sure that you reach your goals, there are a few things to consider before you take a study break. These include:
No Break the First Three Months of Your Studies
The first three months of your studies are crucial in your course. To ensure that you succeed, you cannot take a study break within the first three months of registration. This allows you to adjust to studying via distance learning.
Be Up-to-Date With Payments
To have your study break approved, you need to pay your student account in full. This removes the stress of having to pay for your studies after your break. When you get back to your course, you’ll be able to put all your attention on your studies.
Should you Take a Break?
This all depends on you. But if you don’t need it, then focus on completing your course. Also, consider when you are taking your course. If you have any upcoming exams, like matric or ICB exams, consider what will be the best time to focus on your priorities.
Skills Academy is the word support in every way.
