How we Help you Pass

No Time limit 

Here at Skills Academy we understand the pressure that comes with studying. Therefore we have no time limits on our courses. You can complete them as fast or as slow as you like. This takes away the pressure to complete assignments by a certain time and it allows you to juggle work, family and your studies all together. Our aim is to make studying enjoyable for you.

Course Extension 

If you need more time to finish your course, we give it to you. You won’t have to re-register or pay an added fee. That’s right!  All you have to do is email your lecturer or call our course advisors and we will ensure that you get an extension. 

Benefits of our no Time Limit Policy 

  • Pay as you study
  • Take a break when you need it 
  • You can finish courses earlier 

Dedicated Lecturers 

You only need three things to help make studying easy. A good institution, dedicated lecturers and motivation. Our lecturers make themselves completely available to help you every step of the way. Lecturers ensure that you understand exactly what your work entails and how to do the work. 

Instant Feedback 

How will you know where you have gone wrong if no one tells you? Skills Academy lecturers and tutors prefer giving immediate feedback. This applies to assignments and exams.

Queries and Questions 

Your questions and queries are important to us. We don’t leave our offices until all student questions have been answered. If you send an email before three you will have an answer before the end of the day. We have this policy to give our students the confidence they need to do well.


You might think that because you’re doing distance learning, you’ll be doing your assignments on your own. This couldn’t be further from the truth. Once you have submitted your assignment, lecturers give you feedback in at least 24 hours. You only wait one day to receive your marks and notes made from your lecturer

Tests and Exams 

After completing a test or exam, our lecturers will mark it and give you feedback. This feedback will highlight where you struggled, why your answers might not have been correct and if you are doing a good job. All feedback no matter if you fail or pass, is there to help keep you motivated and to ensure that you pass. 

With Skills Academy our priority is our students - here is how we help you pass.
