Have you considered UK home study?

UK home study can offer a wonderful opportunity for gaining new skills or experience, and is particularly suitable for anyone who cannot attend face to face classes due to other commitments (for example, a full time job or family responsibilities).

The benefits are obvious: you can study from the comfort of your own home, at your own pace, and at a time and place that is convenient to you.

However, before you sign up for a home study course, you should also consider the drawbacks to home study. This will give you a more accurate picture of the type of challenges that you will encounter and will help you assess whether these courses are suitable for you.

  • You won't have the emotional support that you would from a face to face course. By this, we mean that you won't have the same interaction with other students as you would in the classroom. However, there are ways to counteract this - forum sites and student chat rooms represent a good opportunity to network.
  • It can be difficult to stick to a routine and move through your studies at the pace that you originally decided. You'll need to be extremely self disciplined and self motivated to stick to your plan of study.
  • Some employers look down on home study degrees. Although this perception is often unjustified, it's important to acknowledge that a home study degree may not look as impressive on your CV as a degree gained in a bricks and mortar institution.
