Academia's online delivery difference

We have transitioned to online studies for all courses including during the coronavirus lockdown.

Our classes are delivered by an experienced teacher streaming the lesson online where students can ask questions, work on examples, share a whiteboard, join a virtual group to work together and so on. The online lesson is complemented by a wealth of digital learning resources students are offered an optimal environment to succeed in their studies.

This is very different to traditional online training where students study online independently with 1 or 2 hours per week of live teaching and support by their teacher.

Our students study in small online groups per 1 teacher with the lesson recorded for later playback.

Prospective students can join a free live class to see the quality of our tuition first hand.
