Accredited Study Centres

Study Centres offer a service to students who would like supervision of their studies, have the social interaction of studying in a group and/or the academic support of some face to face tuition. Study Centres also help the students to submit assignments and any other administrative documentation.

Each Study Centre has their own schedule and adds value in their own way.
