Study House

About us

Study House is an established provider of open and distance learning courses designed especially for people seeking to enhance their skills through work-based and distance learning.

We specialise in providing a straightforward approach to learning with the emphasis on good quality learning materials.

Based in the UK, Study House now works with a number of international partners to provide local opportunities for overseas students.

Most of our open learning courses are accredited, providing successful candidates with a recognised award. Programmes can be studied at home or at work, and at your own pace. Full support is provided throughout so that you won’t get stuck, even though you have all the flexibility of not having to attend a tutor led course.

STUDY METHOD

All of our courses are designed for study at home or artwork, 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. Course packs provide everything required to complete your studies.

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.

Why choose us

STUDENT PROFILE

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.

ASSESSMENT

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.

ACCREDITATION

All of our courses are accredited by NCFE or ABC AWARDS. Both are awarding organisations recognised by the regulators in England, Wales and Northern Ireland providing you with a recognised award on successful completion of your course.

TIME COMMITMENT

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. On average, students will take between 60 and 210 hours to complete [less for short courses].

TIMESCALES

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.

TUTOR SUPPORT

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.

EQUIPMENT

No special equipment or materials are required as everything needed is supplied in your study pack. Students may find access to a computer helpful in order to word process and/or email assignments but this is NOT essential.
