5 REASONS WHY YOUR NEXT COURSE SHOULD BE A DISTANCE LEARNING COURSE
Wondering whether you should study your next course via distance learning? Here are 5 reasons why this is a good idea:
1. It is more affordable than attending class-based courses
Distance learning colleges save on campus hire and maintenance costs, which means that they can carry the savings over to the student and offer courses at an affordable rate.
Distance learning allows anyone and everyone to access many of the same courses other colleges offer, often at a fraction of the cost.
Distance learning at Oxbridge Academy also holds the following financial benefits:
- Your course fees are all-inclusive, which means you don’t have to spend any extra money on textbooks.
- By studying from home, you save money by not having to move closer to, or travel to, your college.
- You can pay for your course in interest-free monthly instalments.
2. It allows you to start studying any time of the year
With distance learning, you can enrol for your course whenever you want to. You don’t have to wait another year to start your studies — nor do you have to worry about missing a registration deadline. At Oxbridge Academy, you can even register today!
This model of education also means that the workloads of tutors at Oxbridge Academy are spread evenly throughout the year, allowing them to get back to you in 48 hours or less — every time you have a query.
3. It gives you the chance to get ahead while studying
Distance learning allows you to balance your studies with a full-time occupation — whether it’s raising your children, working in an office, or starting your own business.
What this means is that while graduates from campus-based colleges go into the labour market with no work experience, you could already have a couple of years’ experience on your CV by the time you complete your course. And as everyone knows: experience matters when looking for a new job.
You can also choose to job-shadow a professional, enrol for an internship or apprenticeship, or travel while you study.
4. It gives you the opportunity to pick the course of your choice
You don’t have to settle for courses offered at the colleges closest to your home. With distance learning, you can access the course of your choice from anywhere in South Africa.

5. It provides you with individual support
Many people think that not learning in a classroom is a disadvantage. But this is actually an advantage, as you will study as a private distance learning student and receive individual attention whenever you need it.
You will not be just another face in a class — you will have dedicated academic support to help you with each and every query you might have. Oxbridge Academy also aims to help you study better via distance learning with a number of distance learning resources.
What’s more: Oxbridge Academy’s tutors are also working professionals in their fields, making sure that you receive the kind of education that will improve your professional work prospects.
