Deciding to study, whether full-time or part-time, is probably one of the most significant decisions you will make in your life. By deciding to study, you’re taking the first step towards changing the course of your future.
So, what can you expect during your first few weeks with Oxbridge Academy?
Once you’ve paid your registration fee, you will receive your first set of study material via post or courier. This set of study material will contain your Welcome Pack, which includes:
- Your personalised student card
- Your registration letter and information pack
- Your first study unit/module
- An outline of your payment plan
- A study programme
- A Success Study Guide
You will also gain access to the Oxbridge Academy Student Portal, which is there to help make your distance learning experience an enjoyable, enriching, and hassle-free one. It allows you to access course material, submit your assignments, and view your results and account balances online. The Student Portal also gives you access to study tips, tools, and other helpful resources.
Tip: When you receive your Welcome Pack, take some time to read through all the documents and to familiarise yourself with the structure of your course. Also make a note of any assignment due dates, exam registration deadlines, and exam dates.
As soon as you have familiarised yourself with the details of your course, you can draw up your own schedule, and start studying.
