Distance learning means that you can study from anywhere. And when we say anywhere, we mean anywhere! It doesn’t matter whether you live in a big city, a small town or a tiny rural village, your study material will be delivered to your doorstep. Here’s how we make sure that we reach you, and that you can reach us!
Starting your distance learning journey
Let’s say that you live in a rural area, and that you desperately want to study a course that will open the door to a career. But there aren’t any accredited colleges in your area and you can’t afford to move to another part of the country. This is a problem that faces millions of South Africans. If you’re battling with this, then distance learning could be the perfect option.
Once you’ve carefully considered all your study options and chosen the course that’s right for you, you can easily start your study journey by registering over the phone, email or online. You’ve officially taken the first step towards a brighter future and can now look forward to receiving your study material!
Receiving your study material
Once you’ve registered, you’ll need to pay your registration fee. (Click here to see the various ways you can pay). When the payment has been processed, your books will be dispatched to you within 24 hours. To get your books, you can choose between courier and post. We always recommend the courier option to our students, as our courier partner can deliver books straight to your doorstep within 8 working days. If you choose the post option, it takes between 7 and 14 working days for your books to be delivered to the nearest Post Office, where you can collect them. You’ll receive a tracking number to help you keep track of your delivery. Remember that both delivery methods are completely free of charge!
Submitting your assignments
Once you’ve received your books, you can immediately start working on your assignments! If you have any questions while you’re studying, then you shouldn’t think that you won’t be able to receive assistance due to the fact that you’ve chosen distance learning. There are a number of channels that you can use to receive support from us, including WhatsApp, social media, email or phone. Similarly, there are a number of ways you can submit your assignments. You can email them to us, upload them to your student portal, or send them via courier or post. The assignments are then passed on to the tutors for marking, and your final results will be available within 14 working days. Students can access their marked assignments on the student portal. Remember that if you fail your assignment, you will have the opportunity to rewrite.
