Home Study Explained
Home Study Courses are a type of learning material in the form of manuals, CD Roms, Online courses etc. where you; the learner, are not physically required to be ‘onsite’ to be guided through any of these learning materials. Learners and tutors will use methods such as email and telephone to communicate, with you deciding how, when and where you learn.
UK Learning College gives you the flexibility to complete our home study courses as quickly or as slowly as is convenient for you. To make this possible, our home learning courses have been written and prepared in such a way that they enable you to take control over these decisions.
Home study courses allow you to develop the personal confidence and independence needed for success. Once you have become familiar with your home learning course materials and you feel you know your way around the course, then it is time to put together your own personal study plan to help you decide how best to study. We would advise that you write down your plan to assist you in following your home study timetable.
Although our home learning course guides are primarily aimed at the first time user, you may already have some experience of home learning. Whatever your experience, it is important to understand that to be a successful home study course learner, you need to become familiar and comfortable with the learning materials.
We understand that studying from home may be a new experience for you. You could even be excused for feeling a little daunted since you will not be studying in a traditional "classroom environment". To help our students overcome these concerns we have developed a friendly online student community. The Student Community encourages a high level of interaction with your tutor and other like-minded students.
All of our students receive access to the Student Community. You will be able to use the student community for the following:
Access free courses such as: Improving Learning Skills, Job Interview Skills, The Effective Learner, Goal Setting and Time Management, Ten Tips to Complete a Good Test Paper
