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. 


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.
