Why Choose Our Access to Higher Education Course?
Why you might
|Start the course whenever you want. No waiting.||Some colleges have fixed start dates.|
|No classes to attend – Study at home, at your own pace.||Other colleges need to to attend during the day.|
|Five years to complete your course – because sometimes life gets in the way.||Many colleges require you to complete the course in a year.|
|60-day refund period. Take your time to decide whether you're happy with the course.||Some organisations only give you 7 days to cancel your course if you're not happy with it.|
|1:1 tutor support. Plus your own mentor. Our mentoring helps you stay on track and identifies problems while they are still small.||In some colleges you're on your own.|
|Printed materials delivered to your door. We provide both a printed edition and an interactive state of the art online portal. It’s easier to study that way.||Some courses are online-only. That's OK if you are happy to study online. But two-thirds of our learners prefer printed course materials.|
|Interesting course material. Our course is fun to do.||Others provide a dry, academic course that is boring to read and time consuming. It’s harder to do a course if the material is dull.|
|Interactive glossary. The couse will throw challenging new words, like oogenesis or vasosupressin, at you. Our glossary gives you instant answers. It's always there for you.||On other courses you'll have to manually look up, and then remember the meaning of each new word.|
|All inclusive package. There are no hidden fees. You don't need any extras. We provide free online text books.||Check whether you have to pay for text books or other costs.|
|You can contact other learners, so you can learn from them and share experiences.||Some organisations have no system for letting you make contact, so you're isolated.|
|You receive regular Progress Reports and reminders, tailored to your individual progress. They will help you stay on track.
||You're unlikely to get this from other organisations.|
And finally, you get all the advantages of home study: no classroom attendance, learn from home, study at your own pace, no previous knowledge required.
