    Online learning vs. university

    In a world that has previously depended on university degrees to get a boost into the perfect career, we want to remind you that it is no longer your only option

    Online learning is an innovative and exciting alternative that can open you up into endless possibilities, without the £50000 worth of student debt. Going further, it allows you to work from any location at a schedule that can suit any lifestyle.

    For those who want or need to begin earning as soon as possible, an online course can be completed alongside any job. You will be fully supported by course mentors to keep you on track and offer guidance whenever needed.  

    Designed with your career in mind

    We primarily offer courses within the areas of coding, cyber security, IT and project management. These are 4 of the most sustainable career paths in the job market with the demand increasing year on year. This means employers are actively looking for skilled professionals with these certifications to fill their vacancies. 

    The online courses are constantly updated to remain relevant and in keeping with employer demands. They are designed to bring you the confidence to apply all the knowledge you learn within a real-life professional situation. This is something universities often fail to incorporate and can be a main cause of unemployment amongst university graduates. 

    Our certifications and course collections are each catered towards career paths. Students on our full stack developer course have found themselves in junior developer roles within a few months of starting the course. This is before they have even finished the certification and it is because the course immediately works towards building a portfolio to attract employers.

    In addition to having courses designed around employability, we also offer a personalised career service to each of our students. Working closely with recruitment experts, we have collated all the information you need to form an eye-catching and relevant CV, cover letter and LinkedIn profile. Alongside these guides, you also have a personalised consultation with a career expert to offer unique insights and advice into how to reach your career goals. This is a massive opportunity and we are proud to say is currently unrivalled by other online learning providers.


    Which course is right for you?

    The honest answer here is, it is completely based on your career plan. Many of our beginner courses require no previous experience and the more advanced courses are structured to be easy to follow. In addition to the course content, we have a dedicated StudentCare team to support you with any queries and a network of real industry experts to advise you via email. We pride ourselves on providing certifications which are suitable for everyone and will always go the extra mile to help someone reach their dream job.

    Hear from an expert

    We interviewed CompTIA's Chief Technology Evangelist to hear his take on the tech industry and a unique insight into how he would recommend starting out.

    “Trust me, I wish I had gotten certified earlier because I wouldn’t have had anywhere near the amount of student loan debt that I had to pay off.

    I got lucky. I got into the tech world and was able to pay off that student loan pretty quickly, but do you know how nice it would’ve been to buy a nicer car, another car, other than that student loan debt?”
