How Studying with ACS Works
ACS courses are studied via distance which means you can study and learn at own home. This saves you time and money.
Studying online doesn't mean you're alone. We value our students' experiences and we're only a phone call or email away when you need us. Our friendly tutors can help you every step of the way. If you have any questions at all, they are always happy to help.
Each lesson includes tasks and activities, and is then completed with an assignment which you will submit to your allocated course tutor. The tutor reviews the assignment and return it to you with comments or feedback. This can be a really great tool for dialogue between you and your tutor.
