How can I succeed as a home study student?

We all learn in a different way, and understanding your own learning style will help you to succeed in studying via a home study college.

Here are a few useful tips for studying from home via distance learning:

  • Do not try to learn a new technology and the course material at the same time. Make sure that you know how to use a computer before you start your course.

  • Try to stay on schedule with your assignments and tasks. Do not procrastinate!

  • Set aside a quiet area in which you can study without being disrupted.

  • Ask for help when you need it – there are tutors waiting to assist you.

It is also good to have a strong support system at home to make your learning environment more comfortable.
