Compliments like Stacey's from our graduate survey are not uncommon, as student after student completes their course with greater knowledge of their chosen subject, deeper understanding of the principles involved and the newly honed skills that enable them to confidently enjoy their chosen profession. To say nothing of the accredited qualification that will open doors to careers they could not consider entering before the successful completion of their course.
Christine enjoyed her course so much that that she has now completed three in total. The reason that so many students quickly relax into their studies and enjoy them is because of the superb tutor support that they receive. All of Stonebridge tutors are handpicked professionals, fully qualified to coach their students to success. Not only that they are friendly in their approach and encouraging with the counsel they offer. Unlike many other colleges tutors can be contacted can either be by telephone or email, you the student choose which is best for you.
There is no finish deadline on the vast majority of Stonebridge distant learning courses. This means that students can fit their home study around their existing commitments not having to worry about completing their course to a set deadline. When comparing FE colleges with Stonebridge home study this fact clearly stands out. There are no set times to study nor any costly time consuming trips to unwelcoming “bricks and mortar” classrooms, just the privacy and comfort of your own home!
“Time is more valuable than money. You can get more money, but you cannot get more time” so said the motivational speaker and author Jim Rohn. Those wise words are taken to heart by all at Stonebridge which means that the courses are created in such a manner as to convey the necessary knowledge, understanding and skills in an interesting yet economical fashion. The blended learning courses combine theory modules that can be studied at home with practical sessions on Campus. The result is a startlingly effective way of learning even the most practical of subjects.
When it comes to paying for your course Stonebridge cannot be bettered. Heavy investment in information technology now enables courses to be delivered without the need for heavy overheads. The course fees are nearly always the most student-friendly in the whole of the UK without neglecting any aspect of delivery. Not only that, students have up to four methods of paying their fees dependent on the course in question.
There are over 700 courses split across 30 specialist learning centres each supported by an active online student community.
