Because we have such a varied student based from all around the world and one of the best Distance Learning Colleges around, we have quite a back catalogue of courses in so many different categories. This can therefore lead to several courses being missed by prospective students or students that are looking to continue their studies with us further.
This is why over the coming months we will be running a series of blogs designed to highlight a course category and a range of courses in that category, to help you make an informed decision and highlight any courses which you may have missed whilst browsing.
