Study Fees

Study Fees are a big factor when deciding on the institution of your dreams. That’s why it’s important to know exactly how these fees are broken down. Along with the study fees look into what courses we offer you via distance learning. Find out what financial and educational benefits you have waiting for you. 

Skills Academy Payment Plans 

Our students are given an option of one of three payment plans. Each payment plan caters to the individual financial needs of our students. This allows you to feel less stressed and focus on your studies. 

Cash

If you are in the position to pay your tuition in cash, you can. In fact, you could pay off your entire course in one payment. This can be arranged by simply talking to our course experts. 

Monthly Installments 

Monthly installments means that you would make a direct monthly payment to the college. You would have to keep track of your account and dates of payments. This method requires you to be focused and responsible. 

Debit Order

Debit orders are a commonly used method of payment. It means that your bank account will be directly debited by us. Now keep in mind we operate with the highest level of privacy, in fact you set up the debit order so we won’t have access to your bank account. It’s time effective and safe. 

What You get for Your Tuition 

Knowing what you get for your study fees is the benefits of studying with us. There are no hidden fees or costs. We value our students and our services that’s why we go the extra mile to provide you with an excellent education. You get exactly what you pay for, from registration till graduation. 

Online Study Groups 

When registering with us you are placed into an online study group. Your group will consist of students who are studying the same course as you. These study groups will also have expert course tutors in them to help you along the way. 

Dedicated Lecturers 

Our lectures are just an email away. Great thing is, you will almost always get a response immediately. This is because your education is our number one priority. We will do whatever we can to help you.

Types of courses you can look forward to enjoying: 

Only Pay When you Study 

Only pay when you study and you save big. We are the only institution that has this system in place. So basically if you decide you need a break after four months of studying, you can take one. Once on your break you won’t have to worry about making payments. 

30 day Money Back Guarantee 

When you register with us, we give you a 30 day trial. It’s an opportunity for you to see if our method of learning suits you. If you aren’t satisfied with our services you will get your registration fee back.
