What is home study?
Home study is a method of learning that enables you to receive an education without having to attend any classes. You get to choose your own learning environment – whether it is in your bedroom, at the office, or at the local library.
Different types of home study
Home study, also known as distance learning, can take various forms. For example, it can take the form of online learning, where students can view video lectures online, or it can be achieved through correspondence education. With correspondence education, students receive all their study material via post, and can work through their assignments at their own pace.
The Learning Group offers the latter form of distance learning – correspondence education. When you register for a course with us, we will assign you to a tutor, so that when you get stuck or need some extra help, you have someone to assist you.
Some tips for distance learning:
Make sure that you are comfortable with using a computer.
Make a note of all the important dates, and keep them in a place where they are visible.
Set aside a quiet area in which to study.
Try to stay ahead of schedule – do not leave assignments for the last minute.
Make sure that you are always aware of where your study material and notes are.

Where can I study?
Once you have decided on which course you would like to study, you need to make a decision about where you would like to study. There are many home study colleges to choose from, but your decision should be based on:
What you hope to do once you have completed your studies.
How much time you are willing to dedicate to your studies.
Which colleges offer the courses that you want to study.
What type of student support you are looking for.
