Top Tips

Do your research
It's important to find out what all of your options are and what you want from a course. Do you need a part-time course, the option to study in the evening or even distance learning?

Find the right course
Are you pursuing your passion? Progressing in your career? Or are you changing careers completely? Find out which courses are available and work out which level is right for you. The level you need to study will depend on your existing qualifications and experience, plus they have different costs and funding options. Our Levels Explained guide can offer you some insight.
