We offer you free advice before you enrol
Would you like to discuss your career plans? Contact an experienced Student Consultant at one of our branch offices. They’re always available to offer advice and assist you in selecting the course of study most suited to your needs.
You start when it suits you
We don’t have closing dates, so you’re free to start your studies whenever it suits you.
You have no classes to attend
With no classes to attend, you study in the comfort of your own home (or at the office during your lunch hour)
– wherever and whenever it suits you.
You study at your own convenience
You won’t have to change your lifestyle. Home study is extremely flexible. You decide on your own hours of study and draw up a timetable that won’t interfere with your family or work commitments.
You study at your own pace
Progress with your course at your own pace, within your contract period. If you’re new to a subject, you can take your time to master it. If you already have some knowledge, you’re free to move ahead onto the next subject.
We give you personalised instruction
We cater for the needs of the individual. If you experience difficulties with any part of your course, or you need advice, a qualified tutor will provide guidance and assistance.
You can earn while you learn
Home study allows you to gain more knowledge and acquire new skills outside of office hours. You can study in your spare time and still remain in full–time employment.
We are leaders in distance learning
We’ve been active in the field of distance education for over a hundred years. Join more than one million students who have already achieved career advancement and personal growth through us.
Studying the INTEC Way
When we send you your first pack of study material, we include an enrolment pack, which explains distance education learning processes and gives you all of the contact details you might need during your studies. You will find that we have the best system for correspondence study.
You don't have to pay annual registration fees
Your course fee entitles you to study with us for up to two years, depending on your chosen course. If your study period is longer than one year, you won’t have to pay a re-registration fee for your second year.
Your course fee covers your tuition fees, study material and the kit items that you will need to pass your course. We will inform you of any additional exam fees in the overview of the course on this site. We sometimes suggest additional reading or items, but you can decide whether or not to buy these items. When we send you study material, learning items or marked assignments, we pay the postage fees.
We give feedback and help if you don't pass
The assignments in our study material are developmental. This means that if you don’t pass an assignment the first time, we give you feedback and another opportunity to submit that assignment. Our exams are fair, and set by subject matter experts. We are committed to helping you to gain real skills.
You can request individual telephonic or e-mailed attention from your tutor. Your tutor works in the field that you are studying and is an expert in the subject.
Motivation and help
Motivation and help are a telephone call away. We have support personnel, who specialise in your area of study, available on the phone. If you struggle with a course, we might suggest that you do a bridging programme.
