Study options

Classroom tuition

Face-to-face learning with experienced tutors allows you to ask questions and network with your peers. There are a number of approved tuition providers for you to choose from and learning materials are normally included in your course fee.

Distance learning

If you are unable to attend classes, but would value the support of a tutor and peer-to-peer learning, distance learning offers a mix of tutor sessions and self-study support, and is offered by a number of our tuition providers.

Online learning

This option is similar to distance learning, but is delivered online through live and recorded tuition sessions. This learning option uses  online materials and resources that can be accessed anywhere in the world. A number of tuition providers offer this option.


This study route allows you to study on your own. This means you can study from the comfort of your home or when you’re on your commute. You can study the the course material in your own time to fit your studies around other commitments. You will need to purchase the learning materials for your exams.
