There is much that sets our Academy apart from other course providers, and all with the aim of helping you to achieve the results you want.
Unlimited Tutor & Admin Support
Right from the beginning you are assigned your own personal expert tutor whom you may contact as often as you like, we encourage dialogue between you and your tutor. Our tutors are professionals who must be active within their respective industry with at least five years experience.
Tutors provide feedback at the end of each graded assignment. We believe this dialogue is essential for a better understanding of the topic.
If you have any technical problems or queries during your studies with us, a member of our student support team will be available to help you out from Monday to Friday, 9am-5pm London time. Just give us a call on +44 (0) 1227 789649, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Practical & Academic Tasks
When you enrol you are not just purchasing a set of notes or books, but purchasing a learning programme. You are given practical tasks (set tasks) to complete (located at the end of each lesson) as well as academic assignments. Being able to demonstrate at a job interview that you have practical skills in addition to the subject knowledge, will set you above the competition. We encourage students to network, observe and do things in the real world in many ways.
Practical Tasks may include:- Field Research, Networking and Analysis, Conducting Surveys, Growing, Collecting, Photographing, Observing Processes
