Studying with Study House
All of our courses are designed for study at home or at work, and do not require attendance at a college or an exams centre. This enables you to plan your studies around other commitments and determine your own study schedule and timescale. On enrolment you have a full year to complete your studies. Course packs provide everything required to complete your course.
During your course there will naturally be a significant amount of reading but you will also be encouraged to undertake other activities to reinforce your learning. These include researching and observing, completing activities, examining examples and case studies, and completing assignments.
This guide provides a general summary of our courses and who they are intended for. In addition we publish a full course description for each programme with aims, objectives and content. These are available of the courses page of the website.
Each programme starts from the beginning so that you do not need to have any prior knowledge or qualifications to complete your course.
Students come from a wide variety of backgrounds and ages. We have a minimum age on registration of 16 years but no upper limit! Many of our students choose to study to develop work related skills for a current job or future career move. We also have many who are not in paid employment, and who study out of general interest.
Our courses feature a series of tutor marked assignments – usually a set of questions which encourage you to put theory into practice either in relation to a workplace environment, through your own practical experience or, if you prefer, to case studies which we can provide. Competence based QCF qualifications do in addition, require a work placement in which to gather evidence of important practical skills.
All of our courses are accredited, and certificated by recognised awarding organisations who are accredited by the regulators in England, Wales and Northern Ireland providing you with either a recognised award or certificate of achievement on successful completion of your course. Many of our courses provide a full QCF qualification listed by Ofqual on the databse of national qualifications.
Each student works at a different pace and it is therefore difficult to be accurate about how much time you will need to devote to your studies. The course descriptio provides an indication of the amount of time which will be required to complete the course, although each student does of course work at a different pace.
Once registered, you are entitled to tutor support for a full year enabling you to complete your programme at a pace and schedule which suits individual requirements. If necessary the timescale can be extended through discussion with your tutor and payment of a fee.
Each student is assigned a tutor to help you through your course. Your course pack will contain an introductory letter from your tutor with details of how to contact them. Your tutor will mark your assignments and provide feedback and guidance to help you gain the maximum from your course. If you do have any problems whilst studying you can obtain help from your tutor, or from our student helpline which is open each day during office hours. All of our tutors have extensive knowledge of the course you have chosen and are there to help you all of the way.
No special equipment or materials are required as everything needed is supplied in your study pack. Students will find access to a computer helpful in order to word process and/or email assignments but this is NOT essential.
