Added to this we have online e-books enabling you to access your content and take tests wherever you have an internet connection and a Student Services Department operational 7 days per week, you are able to progress smoothly and in your own time; no scheduled class times to work around or being held up waiting for answers and our Student Street community is yours to engage and share with fellow students 24/7.
