Methods of study

In order to offer our students the most convenient and flexible distance learning courses, Stonebridge Associated Colleges offers you the option to study for your qualification either via the paper-based or the study online methods:

1) Conventional paper-based study
With paper-based study you will be posted your first two lessons, with one question paper. Once you have completed the question paper for the first lesson you can e-mail, fax or post your answers back to the College. Once your personal tutor has received and marked your answers, we post you out the next lesson and question paper with your feedback from your previous question paper. This process continues like this until you have completed your course.

2) Online study through Elearnuk
When you choose to study through Elearnuk you can quickly access your course material online and submit all of your question papers to your online tutor, using your unique student account. You have access to all of your course material from the start, and your tutor sends you an e-mail containing your results and feedback.

With Elearnuk you simply enrol, sign on, and conduct all class activities, from any location in the World, with only a standard Web Browser and without complicated plug-in software. Many students find this to be a far faster and more convenient way of study. Plus you always have the option to print your course material off if you feel more comfortable studying from paper!

Remember, you study the same course material, and have access to the same level of tutor support as the paper-based students.

Student Story

'I began this course because I was looking to take the plunge into a new career as a Nail Technician. All my friends were busy studying with Stonebridge and were commenting on how much fun they were having, so I thought I would give it a try!

Needless to say, the course materials arrived promptly and they were of an excellent standard. The information received was very educational and I knew I was studying up-to-date and relevant materials. My tutor was prompt, efficient, informative and very helpful in her comments about my assignment performances. If I needed to engage with her for any queries, she was more than happy to help. The best thing was, no matter what query I had, it was always responded to within a few hours - now that's service!

I have done home study courses before and have never been as impressed as I am with Stonebridge. I have already recommended the college on several occasions and look forward to doing another course with you in the near future. Why go anywhere else when you have found the best?

I am sure I speak for all your students when I extend a big "thank you" to all the administration staff and tutors for their co-operation, support and encouraging comments.'
