Hear what some of our successful students have to say

Excellent and thoroughly recommended. Have used the ExP courses for a number of papers now and passed all of them first time. The courses are great and easy to follow and cover all the key areas. Very thorough and at a good pace. Nothing more for me to add apart from “Thank you ExP and keep up the good work” : ) - Nataliya R

The ExP courses were excellent. The key areas were summarised perfectly and the exam approach techniques presented during the practice stage were exactly what I needed. I watched the majority of the course on my iPhone during my commute to work on the train and the technology was spot on and never let me down. I’d highly recommend the ExP courses. 5 stars as far as I’m concerned! - Sam H

This was the first time I’d used online courses following a friend’s recommendation about ExP and I loved it. Passed first time : ) The whole experience was very smooth from the registration through to the study and the mock exam. No complaints at all and loved the approach of the course. Thank you ExP : ) - Fiona P

Thanks to ExP, my dream of becoming a Chartered Accountant has been fulfilled. I’m now fully qualified and the ExP group made it easy with their lectures, notes and tips. I’m eternally indebted to the ExP team. They made complex subjects understandable and really helped me pass my exams. It was ExP’s support and guidance that enabled me to succeed in the exams. - Yaw O

Study method describes the format in which the course will be delivered. At Reed Courses, courses are delivered in a number of ways, including online courses, where the course content can be accessed online remotely, and classroom courses, where courses are delivered in person at a classroom venue.

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body's logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
