The way the program works is that you will have access to all the course materials online. Once you enrol you will be assigned with a tutor. You will have an assignment at the end of each lesson and you will have to complete the assignment and email it to your tutor for marking. The tutor will mark it with comments and feedback and make sure it is satisfactorily complete and send it back to you. This way the tutor will be able to monitor your progress throughout the course and guide you through it. At the end of the course you will have an exam which is also done via distance. Lot of students find that they have more personal tutor contact this way than a classroom based course where you feel inhibited to ask questions.
