As a student with this institution, you have a large range of services available to help you study.
Many of these services are more than what you find at other institutions
.........Check us out and compare
Academic staff (qualified and experienced experts from the discipline you are studying); will answer questions and provide technical advice.
You can contact these "tutors" by email, chat, phone, fax
Administrative staff are available to answer questions and provide technical advice.
You can contact these "tutors" by email, phone, fax or through the postal system.
Staff are on duty during working hours, five days a week in both of our administrative centres (ie. United Kingdom and Australia).
Most enquiries are answered the same day, or weekend enquiries, on the following Monday.
Complex questions may need to be referred to a specialist or senior staff, which can cause a delay; however servicing you as a student will still be given the highest priority.
Online Student Room
This is a unique feature of this school providing a range of services in a secure part of the internet.
The school's mail order bookshop stocks a large range of books, and e-books, all of which have been reviewed by tutors and judged as accurate and useful support materials in one or more of our courses. It is not necessary to purchase additional books, but they can be useful, and if you do seek to purchase anything, you can not only obtain advice from our staff, but are also eligible to claim a student discount.
The school publishes it's own ebooks written and illustrated to be supplementary reading for courses. These are often optional reading.
While most other colleges would use off the shelf books, which were not usually written with a particular course in mind; ours are written by faculty who know the discipline, know the course, and know what will be appropriate supplementary reading for a student studying that course. The fact that we write and publish these books ensures both a relevance and reliability of supply.
You don't get referred to buy books that are out of print or difficult to buy -which happens too often elsewhere.
You can stay up to date with the latest news by subscribing to the student newsletters.
When you enrol, you will automatically be placed on the list to be emailed newsletters.
Course notes are continually being upgraded and in some cases, significantly expanded. As an online student, you will always have the most up to date course notes.
Articulation of Qualifications
We have established affiliations with a network of other highly reputable colleges around the world. This enables graduates to more readily articulate into further studies at these affiliated institutions. In effect, you can move (for example) from England to Australia, or Australia to England; and find people in your new home, who will know what your qualification from us means. (Often this transportability can be a problem elsewhere).
MORE ABOUT THE STUDENT ROOM
Modern technology has allowed us to create a "Virtual Community" through the student room.
Even students isolated by time and distance can interact with each other and staff at the school, accessing valuable information and seeking support in their study.
The student room provides you with the option to be an active part of a global school community.
Online Library Access
This contains many hundreds of items including articles, books, and other information created by students and staff. It’s search mechanism also links into some of the best reference sites identified by our tutors for supporting studies by our students)
Publishing Students Work
Students can have any outstanding examples of work published online. It is well recognised that a big part of enhancing your career prospects in any field of academic study is to have your work published, and to list "published articles" on your C.V.
Several facilities allow us to help and nurture budding experts by publishing their work including ACSBlog and StudentMagazine
Payments can be made, exam application forms submitted, and other communications made through encoded messages.

Other Unique Facilities
We're always looking for other facilities or services to add to the student room. e.g. An image resizing tool can be found in the student room that can be used to quickly and easily change a large photo or drawing into something smaller and easier to submit over the internet with an assignment.
