How long will it take me to qualify?
The Associate Diploma (Level 5) comes with a Learning Agreement of 11 months and is also offered across our three learning platforms, meaning you can choose between a structured 'taught' route which is offered on the Professional Plan, or opt for a personal coach and take the Immersive Plan, or take an partly independent study route and opt for the Essential Plan. We say partly because no-one is expected to fly solo at Busec Nova and even our online, on-demand platform comes with the option to attend small group seminars that are interactive and based on dialogue between students and our senior tutors.
What are my study options?
You can choose from our Essential, Professional, or Immersive study plans. You have the freedom to study in a way that suits your lifestyle and the way you like to learn.
Essential lets you study online, on demand and at your own pace. It is ideal for independent and tech-savvy learners.
It is the lowest priced of our three plans, but our unique Student Care service is always there for you. This means that you can always get help and support if you need it – from a person, not an algorithm. You can also buy add-ons in the form of tickets for scheduled webinars, recordings of webinars and one-to-one planning and feedback sessions with a subject specialist.
Professional comes as close as possible to the experience of studying in college. You will be placed in a group of students and a tutor will deliver lessons in an online classroom with structured feedback. You will get a timetable showing exactly when you will be studying. Student Care is also available if you need it.
Immersive gives you a one-to-one learning experience personalised for you. Your private tutor provides coaching, guidance and support and you set the pace and agree your own timetable. It is ideal if you want to learn and qualify quickly or if you have been out of studying for some time and want to build up your confidence.
